Club career[edit]

Ehiosun moved from Delta United to fellow Delta State team Warri Wolves in 2008. He scored ten goals in 2009-10 to lead the club.[2] One-third of the way through the 2010-11 season Ehiosun was the leading scorer with 7 league goals, including a hat-trick against Sharks F.C.


He was moved to Turkish club Samsunspor in 2011 summer transfer season. He is an extremely determined football player and wants to be like his father Didier Ehiosun.


On August 3, 2012 Turkish club Gençlerbirliği have signed Ekigho on a 3-year deal.

International career[edit]

After training with the Nigeria National B team, he was called in as an emergency replacement for Victor Anichebe in the Eagles friendly against Sierra Leone. Ehiosun scored seven minutes after coming on as a sub, becoming the 58th player in Nigeria history to score in his debut.[3]
