3SC, Gabros, Wikki Tourist Make Nigerian Top-Flight Return

Shooting Stars are back in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) after their 1-0 win over Akwa Starlet on Saturday.

The Ibadan-based club finished top of the Nigeria National League (NNL) Division B with 50 points.

Silvanus Ebiaku’s match-winner marked a memorable season-finale for ‘The Oluyole Warriors’, who went down the league hierarchy a season ago.

Wikki Tourists and Gabros also returned back to the top flight on the final day of NNL season.

Gabros defeated Ekiti United 2-1 in Ado Ekiti to seal their promotion. The Nnewi club finish the season on 50 points, same as 3SC.

Wikki Tourists will also return to the Nigeria league a season after they were demoted after Saturday’s victory over relegated Prison FC in Bauchi in the Division A. Tourists ended the season with 53 points.
