As a Rossoblù player, he took in loan spells at four different clubs, namely Perugia, Cremonese, Reggina and SV Reid.


Since turning professional, the Football College Abuja product has played in 57 matches for the clubs he has represented, scoring a goal and registering three assists. 


He represented Nigeria in the U17 and U20 World Cups, and made his senior debut in a 2022 World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde in September 2021.


After six matches in the Austrian 2. Liga, DSV Leoben are sixth in the standings with nine points accumulated.
