May. 08, 2019
The President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick and four other officials of the country’s football governing body has been charged with misappropriation of funds, The Nation is reporting.
Those included in the charge are NFF Secretary, Sanusi Mohammed; the 1st Vice-President, Seyi Akinwunmi; the 2nd Vice-President, Shehu Dikko and an Executive member, Yusuff Fresh.
The officials were sued by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), led by Okoi Obono-Obla.
The Federal Government filed the suit before a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday, saying that the officials misappropriated the $8,400 belonging to the football body which was paid by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to the NFF as appearance fees in the group stage of the Russia 2018 World Cup.
