36 Lion has announced the capture of one of their finest midfielders, Peter Oluka by Moldovan topflight side, FC Codru Lozova.
Oluka who was scouted by 36 Lion’s eagle-eyed associates of Ezekiel Maji and Yema Olanrewaju in Abuja in a friendly game got his desired breakthrough when he turned heads at a tournament organised at Lead City University, Ibadan earlier this month where he was adjudged the best midfielder of the talent hunt tourney.
He was quickly exported to Moldova and he is on a rescue mission to rock bottom Codru who are last in the Divizia Nationala with six points from 25 games. He signed a two year deal on March 13th this year and terminates in May 2023.

“Discovered by Coach Ezekiel Maji and scouted in Abuja alongside Star Coach Yema; Peter Oluka is on a rescue mission in Moldova to lift Codru Football Club out of relegation waters and keep them afloat the Divizia Nationala.
“Peter, a.k.a. Wiser has been winning the midfield battle for 36 Lion Football Club since he graduated from our Abuja U-16 under the guidance of Coach Eazy.”

“This young man was recently adjudged the best midfielder in the last Ogunjobi Gold Cup, the best midfielder vs Osun United preseason friendly, the best midfielder in Ibadan at the March 2nd to 5th Diamond Sport/Triple 44 tournament and now he has signed in Moldova with Codru Football Club. We are sure Lion Oluka will make us proud.”
