Relieved Obaje finally in South Africa
Obaje - trapped in Kaduna unrest
Obaje told MTNFootball.com that he is relieved and pleased to return to his base in South Africa after he was held back in the northern city of Kaduna, where he on holidays before a terror attack caused several day-long curfews and thus paralysed the entire city.
Obaje, who arrived South Africa Thursday night, told MTNFootball.com that it was a harrowing experience while the city was under attack.
Because of his inability to join his team in time for a CAF Confederation Cup clash against Al Merriekh in Sudan, the former Heartland winger will now set his sights on the return leg in a fortnight.
"I thank God I am back in South Africa. My experience while the crisis in Kaduna lasted was not a good thing to talk about. It was a crazy situation. I have put it behind me,” he said.
“I am now looking forward to play for my team in the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup game.
“The first leg is today (Friday) in Sudan and I missed it because I was trapped for many days in Kaduna. I was indoors for more than a week.”
