Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kano Pillars, have confirmed that they don't know the whereabouts of their defender, Sunday Chinedu, for the past two weeks.
This development was confirmed by the club following the statement they released on their official website.
The Kano-based club insists that they don't know the reason he left the camp or where he could be at the time of filing this report.
Meanwhile, Jambul claims Chinedu obtained permission from the technical adviser of Emmanuel Lionel Soccoia to see his family for four days on medical grounds on 28th December 2020.
Complete Sports further revealed that this happened after the Sai Masu Gida’s 1-1 draw against Adamawa United on matchday one of the 2020-21 NPFL season at the Pantami Stadium.
Jambul said since then, the defender has gone AWOL while refusing to communicate with anyone at the club.
“The management of the club is doing its very best in protecting the interest and welfare of the players and will not accept any move from any quarter to sabotage our efforts."
He added that the club has now given him between now to the next three days to report back to the camp, and failure to do so will attract stiffer punishment from the part of the club.
Jambul also used the opportunity to address other players to remain focus on the task ahead and be assured that the management would continue doing its best in moving the club forward.

The 28-year-old winger who not-too-long ago parted ways with his Saudi Arabian club side on mutual consent is holidaying in his country home in the northern part of Nigeria.
Although he has been linked with a number of English clubs, however, nothing serious has happened until the transfer window opens a few days from now.
