“As an organisation, we identify with sport generally because of the inherent physical and mental benefits it provides to players, as well as the togetherness it fosters even among an audience of total strangers,” said Azubike Emodi, Managing Director of VFD Microfinance bank, owners of V bank.
 
After a round of 32 games played on the opening day, 16 players moved to the knock-out stage, leading to the emergence of three finalists, Waliu Wale Nojimu, Samuel Olumide and Dafe Agbah.
 
Finalists were initially promised N150,000, N100,000 and N50,000 for the first, second and third positions, respectively. However, the audience was enthralled by the quality of play that they donated additional money to each finalist.
 
The organisers hope to make this a recurring tournament to grow the sport.
