Pillars got off to a good start after just three minutes when Adamu Hassan netted his eighth goal of the season.
Giwa FC fought back and restored parity through Shaibu Ibrahim in the 40th minute, whose solo effort beat the Pillars defence.
Four minutes later, Ezekiel Mba restored Pillars lead with a simple tap-in from a Gambo Mohammmed pass.
Giwa penalty appeal when Usman Deenee was fouled by Isaac Hele was overlooked by the referee.
Fit-again Kabiru Umar then took the game beyond the visitors when he scored the third goal in the 85th minute, just 10 minutes after he was introduced into the game for Mohammed Shagari.
Also yesterday, El-Kanemi Warriors moved away from the drop zone after they beat Warri Wolves 2-0 in Kano in the second match played in Kano.
El-Kanemi now have 29 points from 21 games, while Warri Wolves have 31 points from 21 games.
Onyekachi Okoye gave the Warriors the lead in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot when he sent goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi the wrong way.
The penalty was awarded to the hosts after Monday Osagie handled the ball inside the 18-yard box.
The second goal to seal the victory was scored by substitute Tasiu Mohammed in the 85th minute, when he connected home Demba Malik’s cross.
