A UK-based philanthropist, Philip Agbese, has promised players of Lobi Stars N250,000 per goal when they face Kano Pillars on Sunday.
Two-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) winners, Lobi hosts Pillars in the star-match of matchday 23 at the Aper Aku Stadium.
With only one point adrift the league’s summit, a victory could be enough to displace Plateau United who are on the road in a local derby against Wiki Tourists.
In a bid to motivate the lads to triumph, Mr Agbese, who himself is a native of Benue State has pledged a quarter million for every goal scored.
Mr Agbese made this pledge when he visited the team ahead of the encounter.
The renowned activist author, writer and legal practitioner also supported the fans with the sum of N100,000 to flood the stadium and cheer the team to victory.
The game will be played by 4pm Nigerian time.
