Akwa United maintained their unbeaten run at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, this season edging Ikorodu United 3-0 in their rescheduled match day-two fixture on Wednesday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
It was the first time Akwa United coach, Maurice Cooreman, who masterminded Ikorodu United's promotion last season confronted his former club.
The home side went ahead through Ubong Ekpai with just barely 10 minutes into the game.
Ekpai nodded home Chilekwu Chigozie's cross to put his side in firm control of the game.
The visitors struggled to get going in the game, and they came close to grabbing an equaliser through Abdullahi Fatai who saw his well struck free kick hit the crossbar two minutes before the break.
Akwa United went two goals up five minutes after the break when Harrison Ibukun converted from the spot after Friday Ubong was brought down in the box.
Cyril Olisemah compounded the woes of his former club when he added the third in the 60th minute.
