Ilechukwu who had been with MFM FC for more than a decade has joined Heartland FC ahead of the 2019/2010 season.
To replace their former manager, the Lagos-based club side have hired Bolus after a rigorous screening process.
According to MFM FC, their new coach has been signed to a three-year contract.
“MFM has a standard already that we need to start building on, you know it has been a team that has been to the continent,” Bolus said during his unveiling.
“Lagos State as a whole has the talent and we need to build on what the former coach has put on the ground.
“He has done a good job and we will continue from where he stopped.”
Bolus was the head coach of Giwa FC and was also a former assistant to Imama Amakpakabo at Enugu Rangers.
