Stian Rode Gregersen gave Molde the lead after just seven minutes, before Omoijuanfo struck twice in three minutes to put Erling Moe’s side 3-0 up before the half-hour.
The rest of the match was a formality as Molde strolled to victory. They have now won their last five games and are three points above Bodø/Glimt, who have played a game more than Molde.
Strømsgodset are 10th after losing their fourth game of the season.
Bodø/Glimt beaten as slump continues
Bodø/Glimt’s week went from bad to worse after they were beaten 1-0 by Sandefjord. They have won just one of their last four games and have surrendered their five-point lead at the top.
Alexander Ruud Tveter scored the only goal of the game in the 51st minute to give the hosts victory. It was a significant win for Sandefjord – their third win of the season. Hans Erik Ödegaard and Andreas Tegström’s side moved out of the bottom three and are up to 12th in the table.
