Akwa, however, staged a fight back in bid for an equaliser when Adeyeye Adeyemi eventually equalizer for the champions on his debut of an assist from Etim Mathew to avoid defeat at home.

In Aba, Enyimba returned to winning ways as coach Finidi George guided his side to ending their poor run at home with a 2-0 win over Wikki Tourist. The People's Elephants broke the deadlock in the 36th minute through their new man, Abel James, who scored on his debut at the Aba Stadium.

James scored from Sadiq Abubakar’s cross to complement the entertainment the fans had been receiving and ensure they were in front going into the break. On resumption, Victor Mbaoma doubled Enyimba’s lead four minutes into the second half with a beautiful finish from Gabriel Orok's through pass to silence Kabiru Dogo’s side.
