One of the lethal strikers in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) Tosin Omoyele has terminated his contract with eight times champions Enyimba.
Omoyele who bagged the winner for the Aba Elephants in the game against rivals Akwa United has ended his close to two years stay with the club after joining from Plateau United.
In two separate letters dated 7th January and 1st February his lawyer, T.C. Ujah, LL.D. had written management of Enyimba on the matter.
The Termination Notice read, RE: Unlawful failure to pay salaries to Mr Tosin Omoyele.
We refer to our Default Notice to you dated 7 January 2022 (a copy of which is attached herewith), wherein Enyimba Football Club was put in default for unlawfully failing to pay our Client up to two monthly salaries on their due dates and issued a deadline of 15 days within which to comply with its financial obligations to our Client.
Not only has Enyimba Football Club refused to respond to or acknowledge the said correspondence, but the club has also continuously and brazenly refused to fulfil its financial obligations to our Client, in a manner that is abusive, unfair, and unlawful.
Under the extant laws and regulations, particularly the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players, the current circumstances of the treatment meted out to our Client together with the refusal and failure to pay his monthly salaries and financial entitlements (now over two months) constitute just cause for the termination of the playing contract, for which Enyimba Football Club is liable.
TAKE NOTICE, therefore, that our Client hereby formally terminates his contract with Enyimba Football Club, effective immediately.
TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that his termination is without prejudice to all overdue payables, financial entitlements, and legal reliefs to which our Client is entitled.
The termination means that Omoyele is now a free agent and his representatives can hold talks with any club in and out of Nigeria.
