He grabbed his hattrick nine minutes after the half hour mark with a goal at the second time of asking, thanks to a low cross from Ahmed Musa as Nigeria put the game beyond the Libyans.
Samuel Kalu placed the icing on the cake for Nigeria with the fourth goal to put the Super Eagles in commanding position ahead of the reverse tie in Tunisia on Tuesday.
