Enyimba have handed striker Christian Obiozor an indefinite suspension for ‘gross indiscipline’ with immediate effect.

The former Kano Pillars and Rangers forward has failed to rejoin his teammates in their Ado-Ekiti camp ahead of the new Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season which begins on 14 January, 2018.

A statement on the club’s website read: “The decision to suspend the player is in light of his gross indiscipline and violation of the club’s code of conduct, which has seen him fail to report to the team’s pre-season camp in Ado-Ekiti.”

Enyimba have also forwarded a notice of the striker’s suspension to the League management Company (LMC).

The 23-year old leggy forward joined Enyimba in 2015 after a contractual dispute with Kano Pillars.

He almost moved to South African giants, Orlando Pirates last season before the deal fell through.
