NPFL Roundup: Enyimba Dismantles Kano Pillars As Doma, Tornadoes Secure Surprise Away Victories

While Enyimba players were ruthless at home against Kano Pillars, Akwa United and Bendel Insurance suffered surprising home defeats

There were many surprises in the midweek fixtures played in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) on Wednesday.

While Enyimba were ruthless at home against Kano Pillars, Akwa United and Bendel Insurance suffered surprising home defeats against Doma United and Niger Tornadoes, respectively.

Five-star Enyimba

In what is fondly called the “Zobia Classico”, Enyimba showed class as they dismantled Pillars 5-0 in Aba.

After Eze Ekwutoziam put the People’s Elephant in front early in the first half, the reigning league champions never looked back as they added two more goals to take a commanding 3-0 lead into the break.
