Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministry FC won bragging rights as they defeated bottom rocked Ikorodu United 3-1 at the Agege Township Stadium in Sunday’s Lagos Derby in the Nigerian Football Professional Football League.

Sikiru Olatunbosun gave the hosts the opening goal in the 13th minute as he capitalized on Ikorodu goalkeeper Fatunwase’s blunder in the 18-yard box. The away team leveled score in the 21st minute thanks to Fata Abdullahi’s goal from the spot kick.

However, Stephen Odey inspired MFM FC to win the Lagos Derby against Ikorodu United 3-1.

The young striker netted after 69 minutes, before Ifeanyi Ifeanyi tucked away a penalty to give MFM all three points at the expense of their struggling city rivals.

Interestingly, Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode was at the Stadium to cheer the two Lagos based teams on, it was truly like watching football artistry at its best!
