ABIA WARRIORS FC

Abia Warriors FC is based in Umuahia, the capital of Abia State in southeastern Nigeria.

These days, Abia Warriors FC is perhaps most known for producing a couple of interesting players, currently at top level side ABS FC, namely goalkeeper David Walbe, defender Bright Esieme, midfielder Kingsley Onovo and striker Andrew Abalogu (born 03.10.1992), as well as attacker Peter Onyekachi of Rising Stars FC.

According to the official homepage of the Nigeria National League, Abia Warriors FC ended the season as number 2 of 9 teams in “Division D” of the Nigeria National League 2012. The club scored 17 goals during their 16 matches. I’ve been able to find the scorer of 13 of these goals.

There are several interesting players at Abia Warriors FC. Central defender Chima Kingsley Uluocha (born 28.07.1992) is arguably the star player at the club. Uluocha was part of the Nigeria U-20 national football team for the 2011 African Youth Championship in South Africa. Uluocha, who is often captaining the team, is a versatile player who scores regularly despite mostly being used in defence. During the Nigeria National League 2012, he scored at least two goals. According to unconfirmed sources, Uluocha scored nine goals the season before.  The picture is of Uluocha and was found on http://www.abiawarriorsfc.com/. This is the official homepage but it is unfortunately not very updated.

Other key players are Angelo Aguimo, Mohammed Ahmed Garba, who I believe is a defender or midfielder, Christian Olong and Jack Solomon. Solomon scored at least two league goals during the season while Garba scored at least one goal.

Ijeh Agbo and Chimezie Okoro, formerly of Rangers International FC, are apparently the top strikers at the club. Both players scored at least three goals during the season. Torty Ogbonnaya is another interesting striker and after 7:40 in the following clip, you will see a goal scored by him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoBS6RMUQnY.

Other players I have found that is rather unknown to me include Francis Ojukwu, Kabiru Momoh, formerly of Bendel Insurance FC, Ndubuisi Kingsley Nwokocha (attacker), Nelson Ogbonna, Obasi Okoro, Joseph Onuoha and Agbo Ugochukwu.
