The Nigerian international who joined Lazio from My People FC in 2011 signed a four-year deal worth €5m with the Turkish top flight outfit after he was deemed surplus to requirements at Stadio Olimpico.
"It all started fives ago. Big thanks to all the great Lazio fans who stood by me when the time was rough and when we all smile.
"God bless you all. I will always be praying for you," the 2013 AFCON winner wrote via his Instagram wall @onaziogenyi on Tuesday.
The former U-17 and U-20 star made 22 appearances for the Italian side last season and had two years left on his deal with them.
