Kwara United beat Nasarawa United 2-0 in the match, and Dele Aiyenugba's father was in emotional mood after the match while speaking about his son.
''Years back when I saw that my son had football talent, I used to take him to the field myself even though it was not easy because I had many issues with his mother.
''His mother never wanted him to play football and this many times caused problems between me and her.
''It got the a level that Dele Aiyenugba would have to go and train from the farm and I will wait for him so that I can take him home because his mother won't allow him to go from the house.
''Today, I thank God that my son made it in football and his records with Enyimba and other clubs are there for everyone to see.''
