His efforts earned him a cash prize of 100,000 naira while Okemuite got 75,000 naira for placing third.
One of the highpoints of the tournament was a 9-pointer move made by 2019 World No.4 Enoch Nwali, who hit his rival, Prince Omosefe with a single high score of 294 after spelling 'SLEAZIER' in Round 11.
In other spot placements, Ogedegbe Olawale won the Best Intermediate title, Adebisi Adekansi was ajudged the Best Female player while Sanya Adebola took the Best Opens title.
