MFM FC 3-2 Niger Tornadoes
Kenedinum Chuks’ late strike capped a dramatic 3-2 win for MFM FC against Niger Tornadoes on Sunday.

But Olawale Abisoye got one back for the Olukoya Boys and Michael Ohanu equalised.
That set the stage for Kenedinum to score with a blistering blast in stoppage-time.
The Olukoya Boys maintained top spot in the Group A table with 15 points from seven games.

Kwara United 1-0 Wikki Tourists
