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