From Bauchi To Sousse As Obaje Completes Etoile Deal

Godwin Obaje

Agency report

Last season’s NPFL top scorer Godwin Obaje has completed his move from Wikki Tourists to Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel, the club announced on Wednesday.

The former Mighty Jets forward appeared to be on the verge of joining Spartak following a successful two-week trial, but saw the move scuppered after he failed a medical.

Obaje was quoted on the club’s website as saying, “I have signed for Etoile du Sahel. I started talks with them after they expressed interest in me and they tabled a good offer.

“I’m pleased with the terms in the contract and I have to repay them for the kind of confidence they have in me by exhibiting good performance on the field.”

Obaje caught the eye of several clubs after enjoying a hugely successful campaign with the Tourists. He netted 18 goals as he helped the Bauchi side secure a place on the continent at the end of  the 2015/16 season


The Sousse-based club are currently in second position with 23 points in the Tunisian Ligue 1 Group A table.
