In December 2014 he signed a contract with Norwegian club Sarpsborg 08 ; after changing his mind he signed a second contract with Tunisian club Espérance in January 2015, resulting in a transfer row.

Eventually, he completed the transfer to Espérance later that month.

He moved initially on loan to Turkish club Kasımpaşa in August 2016. The loan deal became permanent at the end of the 2016–17 season. 

In January 2019 he signed for BB Erzurumspor and left the club at the end of the season.

On 19 July 2019 he signed a three-year contract with Hajduk Split and scored on his debut for Hajduk, coming off the bench and netting the third goal in a 3-0 win over NK Varaždin.

Eduok played for the Flying Eagles and was a member of the squad that featured at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

On Friday, 7 November 2014, he scored the first professional goal at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium , Uyo, as the home-based Super Eagles beat Ghana U-23 team 1-0, in an unofficial international friendly held to commission the sports complex.

He had to pull out of the Eagles side in January 2015 due to his ongoing club transfer row.

And he eventually made his Eagles debut as a 69th-minute substitute, in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier away to Tanzania under Sunday Oliseh.
