Lokosa was spotted at Ijebu-Ode, during the Governor Dapo Abiodun Pre-Season tournament, with speculations flying around about which club he will join.

While describing the NPFL as one of the best leagues in the world, the former Kano Pillars player urged the management of Kwara United FC to sustain their support and motivation for the team, to achieve the set goals.

Lokosa played for First Bank before moving to Kano Pillars in May 2017.

At the end of his second season in Pillars, he received the Eunisell Boot Award after his 19 goals placed him top of the NPFL scoring charts, earning him N3.8million (N200,000 for each goal).

After trials in China, he joined Espérance Sportive de Tunis in 2019, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract.
