Enugu Rangers have broken their 32-year-old jinx of not winning the league title.

The team on Sunday defeated El-Kanemi Warriors 4-0, the last day of the season, to lift the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League title.

A hat trick of goals by Chisom Egbuchulam and another goal by Osas Okoro gave them the three points

The Flying Antelopes as team is fondly called amassed a total of 63 points from 38 games to end the season first among other 19 competing clubs.
