The 29-year-old, who has previously played in Ukraine for Metalist Kharkiv, only joined the Red Warriors back in February but has struggled to establish himself at the Sultan Mohammad IV Stadium.
And fresh from booking a place in the AFC Cup quarter-finals after Wednesday's 3-2 win over Terengganu, Kelantan have decided to axe Nwoha to free up one of their four foreign player spots in a bid to boost their continental hopes by getting a more prolific forward.
"We have to be ready for stronger opposition," Kelantan team manager Azman Ibrahim told The Star. "There is no doubt we will have to strengthen our squad with a new foreign pro for the quarter-finals in September.
"We are allowed to make changes and replace the foreign players."
While clubs are allowed to register four overseas players in the AFC Cup, one of which has to come from Asia, Super League regulations only allow teams to field two foreigners, meaning Nwoha has had to fight for playing time with Obinna Nwaneri, Mohammed Ghaddar and Denny Antwi.
Nwoha was initially registered to play in the league his failure to impress, coupled with Ghaddar's fine form in the AFC Cup, saw Kelantan replace him with the Lebanon international.
In total, the Nigerian scored four goals for the Red Warriors, two of which came in their 5-1 league win over Felda United on March 31.
