Esperance announced Lokosa’s departure along with two other players.
The exit of the former Kano Pillars striker did not come as a surprise after the coach of the Tunis side said he does not figure in his plans.
The 26-year-old could now be headed to another Tunisian club, CS Sfaxien.
Lokosa was top scorer of the NPFL with 19 goals in the 2018 season, but he struggled in part due to a major injury he suffered at Esperance where he managed only two goals in 11 games.
