Even though Ikechukwu Ezenwa salary was not publicly announced, he will be the highest earning player at the club ahead of the likes of star midfielder Destiny Ashadi, who has been capped by the CHAN Eagles.

The same source informed GoalBall that Ikechukwu Ezenwa salary could be in the region of ₦450,000 (Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira) monthly, which is a far cry from the initial ₦700,000 (Seven Hundred Thousand Naira) he demanded during negotiations with the club.
Ezenwa will have to battle for the No 1 shirt with Niger international Kassaly Daouda, former U17 and U20 Nigeria international Dami Paul as well as long-serving Yinka David.
