He was captain of the Nigerian team at the CHAN 2016 in Rwanda and was later made vice-captain with goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa taking over the role during the qualifiers for CHAN 2018 and WAFU Nations Cup in Ghana.

The 23-year old spoke about his quality as a defender after completing the move.

“I’m a fast-paced player who plays as a left back,” he told Kalmar FF’s official website.

“I’m also a good ball winner and a good crosser as well.”
