The 26-year-old featured for Katsina United at the just concluded Nigeria National League Super 8, where he scored four goals in three games, to help the Chanji Boys return to the Nigeria Premier Football League.
Mbaoma has now signed a two-year-deal with the Rwandan champions who will be playing in the CAF Champions League this coming League season.
“26-year-old Nigerian player Victor Mbaoma has signed for APR FC on a 2-year contract. This player who has been going through different teams such as Enyimba, MC Alger and many others will help APR FC continue to perform well in different games as he will represent the country in the CAF Champions League international games,” the club announced.
APR are looking to make a statement on the continent this season and they have turned their attentions to the former Enyimba striker, who has scored 51 NPFL goals in his career.
Mbaoma moved to Enyimba in 2019 after a short stint at former League champions Akwa United. He was a regular in Aba before he left for MC Alger, but his sojourn in the North African country was not a fruitful one.
PILLARS, KATSINA PROMOTED!

In a bid to try things out, he moved to FC Qizliqum in Uzbekistan in January, but that also was short-lived before his sudden reappearance at Katsina United for the Super 8.
Before now, news had been making rounds that the prolific striker will return to Remo Stars ahead of the new NPFL season but as soon as the offer from Rwanda came, Mbaoma made his mind up to move to East Africa.
The former Remo Stars skipper now has a chance to prove his worth outside the shores of Nigeria in the colours of APR.
