We resume the investigation of the ground-state pseudoscalar glueball, , by computing its two- and three-body decays into vector and axial-vector quark-antiquark meson fields additional to scalar and pseudoscalar mesons through the construction of an interaction chiral Lagrangian that produces these decays. We evaluate the branching ratio, via a parameter-free calculation, by setting the mass of the pseudoscalar glueball to 2.6 GeV as predicted by lattice QCD simulations. We duplicate the computation for the branching ratios for a pseudoscalar glueball mass 2.37 GeV which matches to the measured mass of the resonance X(2370) in the BESIII experiment. The present channels and states are potentially reached and are interesting for the running BESIII and Belle-II experiments and the planned PANDA experiment at FAIR/GSI which will be able to detect the pseudoscalar glueball within the accessible energy range.
