NFF President Aminu Maigari Arrested by SSS by Antell95(m): 6:21pm On Aug 26, 2014
Aminu Maigari alongside the General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation( NFF) Musa Amadu and another board member,Chris Green have all been arrested by state security service(SSS)

Early this morning,news emerged that Maigari has resigned as the football body's president,just a week after he was reinstated.

A statement from the Sports ministry revealed that the tenure of the present NFF board expired after August 25,2014.

The NFF are currently having their congress in Abuja,but it is understood that the congress refused to carry on with their meeting unless the three men are released,and Maigari presides over it.

The Congress is in their meeting is expected to fix a new date for the elections for new officials for the NFF board.

It has been from one episode to the other for the NFF since after the World Cup,with so many crises rocking the football body.

Maigari was initially arrested by the same SSS on arrival from the World Cup tournament in Brazil and later released.

A court injunction last month sacked the NFF executive before it took the threat of a FIFA ban,and several pleas before the order was vacated .

Maigari was impeached by the NFF,yet again FIFA intervened and faulted the process,saying that it was flawed.

It has been a case of 'one week one trouble' in the NFF,not mentioning the mysterious fire that razed the headquarters of the NFF last week.

Even the devil will be tired of the problems rocking the football house.

FG needs to leave football matters and concentrate on Bokoharam.Until this is done,there is no ending to all these problems.

when an underdeveloped country invests so
much in sports and entertainment when there
are so many pressing issues that needs finance.
people like Maigari will take such a country as
unserious and loot that money since they don't
know how to spend.
over some years now, the nigerian Federal
Government has been owing retired Nitel staffs
their pensions. A good government should Let
the general well being of the people come first
before entertainment. Badluck administration
has conviencingly proven itself to be an ally of
corruption, come 2015 we shall vote him out.

Gangsters in power.
Anywhere with the dollars sign is sure to attract these sets of gangsters.
We all know that the NFF is always in one controversy all the other but, never have I seen the government 's hand so openly involved in a crisis as this one.
What exactly is the business of the SSS in this one?

Bros don't go there, at all.
Football is the only thing the brings us together in this country. I can bet that their arrest is not unrelated to the unfortunate wink wink fire incident.
JUST DON'T JOKE WITH OUR FUTUBOL
