09 December 2015, 07:42

Abuja - Former Black Leopards forward Joshua Obaje has dragged his former team ASO Chlef of Algeria to FIFA.

The 2014 CHAN bronze medalist is currently battling to secure his release from the team, a year after terminating his deal with the team due to unfulfilled promises on their part.

Obaje through the Nigeria Football Federation wrote to FIFA, asking the apex football body to force the Algerian side to sanction his departure as they severally breached several provisions contained in his contract with them.

However the Algerian team are claiming the player went on absent without leave (AWOL) and they want him to return although they didn't deny his claims of breach of contractual provisions.

The 25 year old due to the impasse has so far remain inactive for the last one year as several clubs but home and abroad seeking his services get stuck as ASO Chlef won't send his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).

Locally has represented Lobi Stars, Jigawa Golden Stars, Heartland and Warri Wolves in Nigeria with a two and half year stint with South Africa Black Leopards and six months with Algeria ASO Chlef making up his career so far.
