Abia Warriors will not sign former Heartland and Warri Wolves star defender Ikechukwu ThankGod for the new NPFL season.
Other players who have been eased out after several weeks of trial are former Rangers star Bitrus Dada and Samuel Tswanya, who has previously featured for Enyimba and Kano Pillars.
Tswanya failed to recover from a niggling injury.
Abia Warriors, under new coach Okey Emordi, have moved quickly to sign youngsters from Remo Stars, Delta Force as well as a midfielder, who was recently dropped by Akwa United.
Abia Warriors have been very busy on the transfer market in the close season after they barely escaped relegation.
