CareerEdit

In his homeland, Eze played with Ajiya Babes and Zamfara United, before moving abroad to Ivorian club Africa Sports in 2011. He won the national championship in his first season with the side. Eze subsequently appeared for Africa Sports in the qualification phase for the 2012 CAF Champions League.

In the summer of 2013, Eze moved to Serbia and signed with SuperLiga side Rad. He was transferred to fellow top league club Napredak Kruševac in the 2014 winter transfer window, failing to make an impact with both sides. In the summer of 2014, Eze signed with newly promoted Mladost Lučani.[1] He scored a hat-trick in a 3–2 home league victory over Spartak Subotica on 7 March 2015.[2] Eze finished the season as the league's top scorer with 15 goals.

In July 2015, Eze moved to the United Arab Emirates and signed with Al-Fujairah.[3] He was the team's top scorer in the 2015–16 season, netting 14 goals from 24 league appearances, as the club suffered relegation from the UAE Pro-League. In July 2016, Eze was sent on a season-long loan to Saudi club Al-Qadisiyah.[4]

In August 2017, Eze was transferred to Turkish club Konyaspor, penning a three-year contract. He was later loaned to Denizlispor in January 2018.

After spending several months without a club, Eze signed with Polish club Raków Częstochowa in early 2019.[5]
