Obiefule was the hero as he led Mosta FC to a 5-0 bashing of Marsaxlokk.
Danilo Doncic holds the record with 32 goals and Obiefule is now in a position to shatter the record.
"I am fulfilled with this achievement. It was a great night for me. I thank my mate for their support,” the younger brother of former Eagles star Paul Obiefule told MTNFootball.com
“Now that I have passed the 30-goal target, I believe I can go all the way to score two more goals and rewrite history in Malta.
Obiefule opened his goals rush in the 20th minute with a superb solo effort two minutes after he hit the upright.
He got his second goal in the 47th minute and two minutes later, the Nigerian goal poacher made it 3-0 for Mosta FC.
In the 49th minute, Obiefule rounded the opposing goalkeeper before he slotted the ball home to reach his 30-goal target.
However, he was not done yet as he scored his final goal of the night in the 53rd minute with another solo effort.
