NSCDC who were unbeaten before the game came with much promise but motivated Nigeria Customs Service defeated them with class.
The coach of Nigeria Customs Service, Jonah Adamu dedicated the win over NSCDC to the Controller General of Nigeria Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) for motivating the team.
