Shehu spent two season at Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta and played his farewell game last weekend, where he netted a 59th minute penalty.
Is Turkey the new Mecca for Nigerian players!?
The tears and the smile, huge respect for @anorthosisfc fans, the management, coaching staff and my teammates.
Indeed, I’m honoured for the memories we shared together.
I will come back here in the future and play more.
I LOVE YOU ALL!!! pic.twitter.com/xMsGE2rYIC
