Kano Pillars are back in the top-four on the Nigeria Professional Football League log after putting up a ruthless display on Sunday. They thrashed Abia Warriors 5-0 in their Match Day 24 tie at the Sani Abacha stadium in Kano.
Captain Rabiu Ali who scored two goals on Sunday got his first of the day from the penalty spot in the 10th minute.
Just before half time, Pillars’ lead was extended with Rasaq Adegbite hitting target. In added time, the host through Bala Zakka added another goal to have a comfortable 3-0 lead going into the half-time break.
Though the visitors attempted a defensive approach in the second half, it did not deter Pillars. Ali completed his brace in the 82nd minute before Nafiu Kabuga put the icing with his 90th minute strike.
