The management of Katsina United has declared striker Obinna Eleje AWOL (Absent without Official Leave) after the attacker failed to resume from Christmas break, Sportinglife.ng reports.
The Secretary of the club, Sani Tinau, said the former Enyimba striker, who went on Christmas holiday Sunday, 23rd December, 2018 has not resumed up till now and all efforts made by the club to reach him has proved abortive.
“Obinna is nowhere to be found and has been declared AWOL. His decision to stay away from the club without official permission is unprofessional.
“He went on Christmas holiday since December 2018 and was supposed to resume 27th of the December but we have not seen him up till this moment.
“I have tried his lines on several occasions but could not get through to him.
“The first time I called him was early January when I wanted to inform him to come and sign his salary clearance but could not get through to him, since then till now, I have not been able to reach him and he has not resumed,” he explained.
Tinau implore anybody who has his new contact to inform him to report to Katsina United club house in Katsina before a drastic action is taken against him.
He went further to advice any club fraternizing with the striker to refrain because he is still under a valid contract with Katsina United.
Eleje signed three-year contract with Katsina United at the beginning of 2016/2017 season which is expected to run until December 2019.
