Volleyball Premier League: COAS Spikers guns down Immigration

COAS Spikers conveniently beat Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) 3-0 (25-23, 25-18, 25-17) in the women’s match of the Day 2 at the Nigeria Volleyball Premier League in Abuja.

National team player, Ifeoma Ukpabi was instrumental to the victory against Nigeria Immigration Service at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Nigeria Immigration struggled to fight back in the three sets but the Nigeria Army girl gave their best during the match.

The head coach of COAS Spikers, Elishama Elam told journalist that his players were overcharged before the commencement of the premier league.

Elam said Nigeria Immigration Service defeated them in Lagos and the result in Abuja was a pay back.

He said, “I feel great and give glory to God Almighty for this spectacular performance and results. Before coming to the league, my players was overcharged and do not rule out good planning.

The ex international said he wants to dislodge some teams in the league and finish amongst the top three volleyball team in Nigeria.
