With seven victories and two draws from nine games, the Benin Arsenals are the only NPFL team without a loss this year.
On Monday, Odigie’s team also held a seven-point advantage over the competition in Group A.
Insurance’s 1-0 victory over Enyimba, the eight-time winners, last weekend served as more evidence of their title credentials.
