Abia Warriors declare Obanor missing

18 January 2016, 13:05Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Nigeria Premier League side Abia Warriors FC said one of its dependable players, Erhun Obanor has disappeared without official permission from the club.

The Chairman of the club, Emeka Inyama, who revealed that the former Bendel Insurance of Benin defender has not been seen in Umuahia since the players resumed camping after the Christmas and New Year break while he had refused to pick his calls.

He said such an attitude was unbecomingly of a player who is still under a valid contract.

The chairman reminded clubs that may possibly be fraternizing with the former Nigeria U-23 captain of the consequences of their action insisting that the left-footed player is not for sale.

"Even if he wants to leave, the proper procedure for the transfer of players in the international market must be followed," Inyama said.

The chairman reinstated Abia Warriors' willingness to go for the league title this season, pointing out that his management will not allow any member of staff, player or technical crew to derail this ambition.
