Godwin Obaje scores 2021/22 NPFL fastest goal

Abia Warriors’ forward, Godwin Obaje on Monday scored the fastest goal of the ongoing season against Kwara United in the matchday 4 encounter.

Straight from the kick off, Obaje wasted no time as he put the ball in the net in the very first minute of the game. The game however ended 1-1.

Obaje is Abia Warriors’ sixth signing of the transfer window after the recruitment of Nzube Anaezemba from Lobi Stars, Markson Ojobo, Vincent Edafe, Dennis Kingsley, Mustpha Jibreel.

He made a return to the NPFL after stint with a Tunisian side, JS kairouan.

He was the league’s highest scorer in 2016 where he scored 18 goals to help Wikki Tourists to a third place finish and a spot in next year’s Confederation Cup.

Obaje’s impressive form in the domestic league led to an international call-up from former Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr.

He was on the bench when Nigeria beat Zambia 2-1 in a World Cup qualifier in October 2016.

He also played for El Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri and FC Ifeanyi Ubah in the domestic league.
