The tough-tackling center-back was locked in a contractual disagreement with the Phobians, refusing to turn up for training unless the club meets his demand following the expiration of his two-year contract.

The former Tudu Mighty Jets defender attracted interest from top African clubs and was linked with a move to Asante Kotoko, but he has opted to seek greener pastures by joining Angolan side Petro Atletico Luanda.

He last featured for Hearts of Oak in their 1-0 win over arch-rivals Asante Kotoko in the Ghana Premier League some months ago.
