Super Eagles striker dumps Kano Pillars

18 March 2015, 18:13

Lagos - Christian Obiozor has walked out of Nigerian champions, Kano Pillars, an official of the club has informed supersport.com.

Spokesman of Kano Pillars, Idris Malikawa, told supersport.com that the striker, who joined from Enugu Rangers, left the camp of the Kano club without the consent of officials.

Malikawa could not explain the rationale behind Obiozor's shock exit from the club despite agreeing to a one-year contract with Kano Pillars.

"Christian Obiozor just left Kano without informing anyone of his departure," claimed Malikawa just before he travelled with Kano Pillars for Morocco on Tuesday midnight to face Moghreb Tetouan in the Caf Champions League.

"When the chairman of the Caf Champions League Committee for Kano Pillars, Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima, spoke with him days back he assured he will return back to Kano, but he later sent a message to one of the board members that he is not returning to Kano without explanation.

"If Obiozor has an issue with the club, he should have just spoken to us as we are already ready to listen to any complaint from our players on any issues bothering them," said Malikawa.
