The Aba Millionaires have stripped Josiah Maduabuchi off his position as the team leader ahead of the new season
No special reason was given for the change and the appointment was with immediate effect.
Goal.com however reliably gathered the change may be connected with Maduabuchi's quest to leave the Peoples Elephant for another club.
Another gave the reason as last season's incessant strike actions which Maduabuchi couldn't stamp his authority to foil it. This later affected the team's placement at the end of the season.
Enyimba has not played any continental game since 2011when the club got to the last four of the CAF Champions League before losing to eventual finalists, Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco 1-0 on aggregate.
Enyimba finished fourth with 52 points on the Nigeria Premier League table last season.
