Ezekiel arrived the club on loan from Nigeria Premier League side Enyimba FC of Aba on transfer deadline day, but wasn’t dressed for today’s game due to issues outside his football abilities.

He will be issued a work permit in around three weeks time as exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com few days ago, but he has to travel back to Nigeria for the process to be complete.
