Chisom Egbuchulam will be the toast of Enugu Rangers, as his brace silenced El-Kanemi Warriors 3-0 and hand Enugu Rangers their first Nigeria Professional Football League title in 32 years.

Imama Amapakabo’s men could have emerged champions after defeating Ikorodu United in Abeokuta, but they had to wait till the last game after Rivers United played a 0-0 draw versus Abia Warriors in Port Harcourt.

Sunday's encounter was an ill-tempered one as Ifeanyi Egwin suffered a career-threatening injury after he was fouled by El Kanemi Warriors’ goalkeeper Kazeem Yekeen.

The hosts began the rout in the second minute courtesy Egbuchulam with Osas Okoro doubling the lead three minutes from half time break.

With the clock showing 44 minutes, the Nnamdi Azikwe faithful turned their attention away from the pitch as they continued cheering  in deafening ‘voices’.

The Enugu Rangers players remained focused, however, and they got their third goal after 64 minutes – as the visitors’ backline was completely depleted.

The game ended with disgusting scenes after Yekeen rashly fouled Egwin in the penalty area – with Egbuchulam having the chance to complete his treble after the goalkeeper was given the marching order by referee Ferdinand Udoh.

With this resounding victory, the Flying Antelopes thus ended their search tortuous search for the Nigeria topflight diadem and they will represent Nigeria in the Caf Champions League next season.
