Terem Moffi scored two goals while Ademola Lookman, Moses Simon, Oghenekaro Etebo and Emmanuel Dennis each got a goal.
And according to Opta Nigeria, Osimhen is the first player to score four goals in a match for Nigeria since Yekini scored four in Nigeria’s 7-1 win over Burkina Faso 1991.
The Eagles have now recorded two wins in the qualifiers after sealing a 2-1 comeback win against Sierra Leone last Thursday.
Their next 2023 AFCON qualifier is against Guinea-Bissau in September.
