Aiteo Cup holders FC Ifeanyiubah and Sunshine Stars have booked their places in the last four of the competition after victories in Saturday's quarter-final games.

FC Ifeanyiubah showed that their three-goal advantage from the first meeting of the last eight against ABS FC who have been relegated from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) was no fluke.

This time playing at the Kwara stadium in Ilorin, home of ABS, the Anambra Warriors claimed a 1-0 win to make it four-nil on aggregate.

Patrick Ikeokwu popped up with the winning goal with 16 minutes to time to ensure FC Ifeanyiubah sealed their passage into the last four and will await the winners of the Plateau United versus Niger Tornadoes fixture.
