The head Coach of the Olukoya boys is so confident of what he can deliver this season, almost to a boastful gesture of beating his chest, now a trademark celebration anytime his tutored MFM team scores yet another goal.
Ilechukwu may have discovered a lethal attacking force called the "SO-SO Code"...with which he mersmerize his opponents on the ongoing NPFL this season. Stephen Odey referred to "SO-9" and Skiru Olatunbosun as "SO-7" are the most formidable strike force in the Nigerian League at the moment..
