#HOUSEYARNS – AKWA UNITED FIRE TOP STARS FOR INDISCIPLINE
Akwa United have offloaded nine of their stars with most of them sent away due to gross misconduct, officials have said.
The players are goalkeepers Victor Obiowo and Bassey Akpan, Namso Edo, Kufre Ebong, Alhassan Dosso, Ukeme Davies, Ini Akpan, Aniekan Ekpe and Afeez Awakan.
Home boy Namso Edo was at a time the team’s skipper and dead ball specialist, Nigeria U23 forward Kufre Ebong was one of the club’s highest earners, while Awakan will be remembered for scoring a wonder goal in last year’s Federation Cup final against Lobi Stars.
Akwa United finished a disappointing 14th on the NPFL table this past season.
