Niger Republic came third in the U-18 category as they defeated Benin Republic 27-25.

The U-20 Nigeria team under the tutelage of Coach Fidelis Obi found it difficult in a tensed final against Ivory Coast but they persevered to score the last shot of the match which earned them 29-28 victory over the host.

Niger Republic also came third as they defeated Burkina Faso 30-24.

With this victory, Nigeria’s U-18 and U-20 teams will participate in the continental IHF Challenge Trophy which will hold in Brazzaville, Congo from December 12 to 18, 2022.
