He has now scored four goals in four NPFL games for Insurance this season.

Sarki Ismael added the second for the hosts in the 25th minute.

Austin Ogunye sealed the win with an emphatic finish 14 minutes from time to hand the hosts the maximum points at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.

In Uyo, Rivers United earned a 2-1 away win over Dakkada FC courtesy of goals from Nyima Nwagua and Naibe Akpesiri.

Isaac George opened the scoring for the hosts in the 16th minute before Nwagua restored parity for Rivers United in the 35th minute.

Akpesiri scored the winning goal just before half time to hand Stanley Eguma’s men the maximum points.
