Chijoke Akuneto of Rivers United is the newly topped Purpose King of the NPFL with 19 objectives within the 2021/2022 season.
He thus equaled the tally achieved by Silas Nwankwo and Charles Atshimene final season.
Akuneto scored his 19th aim of the marketing campaign from the penalty spot towards Gombe United after he had been fouled on his strategy to aim.
The Rivers United ahead might be honoured with the Eunisell Boot, which comes with an enormous money prize.
In his case, he’ll obtain N3.8m as every aim he scored will earn him N200,000.
He beat Abdulazeez Yusuf of Gombe and Victor Mbaoma from Enyimba to the coveted aim king award.
