The forward took his footballing career outside of Africa when he signed a one-year loan agreement with Karabukspor in Turkey in 2009. His time at the club was fruitful, as he scored 16 goals in the TFF First League, helping the club win the title and gain promotion to the Süper Lig.

The Nigerian offensive player later joined Fenerbahçe S.K. for an undisclosed cost in 2011 and was eventually traded to Spartak Moscow for €10 million due to allegations of match-fixing levelled against him and his former club. A superb hat-trick against Lokomotiv Moscow was one of the highlights of his time at the club, which he followed up with a brace against the same team in a rematch.
