El-Kanemi Warriors FC on Wednesday announced that Ladan Bosso would not be returning as the club manager when the new Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) resumes.

Bosso joined the Maiduguri-based outfit in the 2014/15 season when they played away from home in Kano and Katsina as a result of the heightened activity of Boko Haram insurgents that ravaged most of Borno State.

The club finished sixth on the log last season, an improvement from their 8th position in his first season when he arrived from Abia Warriors to take over from late Kelechi Emeteole.
