Imama Amapakabo returned to the Cathedral, where he brought League glory in 2016, but the team he left in tatters – now under construction by Gbenga Ogunbote – sent their former Boss off, in defeat on Sunday.
Enugu Rangers needed just a goal to secure a win against visiting El Kanemi in a matchday 8 encounter.
The only goal of the game came through new signing, Kevin Itoya after a good 82 minutes of exciting football.
For Rangers the victory saw them climb to 5, while El Kanemi are rooted bottom of the table – having been without their Manager since the beginning of the season.
In other games played, Kano Pillars earned a hard fought point in a goalless result away to Sunshine Stars – incidentally the only away point in Sunday’s games.
