“Abia Warriors and Coach Imama Amapakabo agree terms as new head coach ahead of the new season,” the club wrote.
Amapakabo had coached Rivers United, Enugu Rangers and El Kanemi Warriors.
It was at Rangers Amapakabo had his finest moment as a coach, after guiding the Enugu-based club to win the 2016 NPFL title, their first championship since 1982.
The 50-year-old served as assistant to Super Eagles coach Gernot and was appointed head coach of the home-based Eagles and the U-23 Eagles.
