Striker Junior Lokosa netted his ninth goal of the season in the 87th minute after Godwin Aguda gave Rangers the opening goal four minutes from the break.
Rivers United recorded a rare away win at Kwara United courtesy of a stoppage winner by Chikere Osita.
The Ilorin club is now second from bottom of the table with 10 points from as many matches amid rumours of sweeping changes at the club soon.
Katsina United picked up their first point on the road at Wikki Tourists in Jos.
Martins Usule grabbed a much-needed equaliser for Katsina United three minutes from after Wikki shot ahead in the 25th minute through Shammah Tanze.
FC Ifeanyiubah and Yobe Desert Stars won at home, while MFM FC was held to a goalless draw in Lagos by Lobi Stars.
