NPFL: Enyimba kick out defender, Ojobo

Reigning Nigeria Premier League champions, Enyimba international, have resolved to kick out one of their “reliable” defenders, Markson Ojobo, after the player was adjudged to have gone against the club’s code of conduct.

According to Farriel Alaputa, the Head of Media at Enyimba, Ojobo has been barred from training with the first team of the Peoples Elephant and the experienced defender has also been placed on transfer by the club after he went against the club’s code of conduct.

“Defender Markson Ojobo has been placed on transfer by @EnyimbaFC after violating the club’s code of conduct,” the Enyimba Media officer wrote on his twitter handle.

He added: “Ojobo who joined Enyimba 5 seasons ago from Bayelsa Utd will no longer train with the first team, pending his eventual move away from Aba”.

Enyimba won a record seventh league crown last season and are already bolstering their squad for the challenge next season and also their campaign in the CAF Champions League where they have been drawn to start against Uganda’s Vipers SC in the preliminary rounds.

The Nigerian Professional Football League Champions will travel to Bukiwe in the weekend of February 12-14 2016 to tackle Vipers, while they will receive the Ugandans on the weekend of February 25-27 in Aba.

The winner of this tie will progress to the next qualifying round to face either Lioli FC of Lesotho or Burundian champions Vital’O in March
