It was an upset in Ibadan as Nigeria Nationwide League One side, Ilaji FC, sprung a surprise at the finals of the Oyo State Federation Cup by spiritedly overpowering Shooting Stars FC of Ibadan to win the 2024 edition.

Coach Babatunde Odubola led his boys to beat the high-flying Shooting Stars via penalty shootout to secure their first state FA Cup title.

The Oluyole Warriors opened the scoring through Pepo in the 14th minute, while Babalola Okikiola equalized for the NLO side in the 30th minute.

Okikiola scored his second goal 2 minutes later to give Ilaji FC the lead as the first half ended 2-1.

Shooting Stars' captain, Taofeek Malomo, equalized for the Oluyole Warriors in the 63rd minute.

Babalola Okikiola completed his hat-trick in the 65th minute to give Ilaji FC the lead once again, but Ayobami Junior ensured the lead was short-lived by scoring a stunner in the 70th minute, leading to a 3-3 draw in regulation time.

Ilaji FC secured the hard-fought victory by winning 5-4 after a penalty shootout, marking a historic day in the club's history.

Both teams will represent Oyo State at the National Federation Cup later this year.
