2018 National Sports Festival Team Oyo Defender Joins Italian Club

Versatile defender Wale Ajibua is set to join compatriot Tosin Fowobaje at Italian hockey outfit, Hockey Team Uras after he was invited by the Oristano based side for trials.

Ajibua who is already a full-fledged international was invited by the Italian side following his exploits for Team Oyo whom he helped to a second place finish at the 2018 National Sports Festival in Abuja.

The rising hockey star would be hoping to impress the Italian outfit and earn a permanent move at the expiration of the three-month trial to become the second Nigerian at the club in addition to Tosin Fowobaje who is in his fourth season with the club.

Reacting to Ajibua’s move abroad, the Acting President of the Nigeria Hockey Federation (NHF), Simon Nkom said the development was a testament to Ajibua’s quality and talent and expressed hope that the Stallions player would be able to seal a permanent move
