DSS Ejects Giwa-Led Faction From NFF Offices On Presidency’s Order
Chris Giwa has been ejected from the secretariat of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on orders from the presidency.
FIFA had threatened to ban Nigeria if the situation was not resolved and Amaju Pinnick not reinstated as NFF president.
The Supreme Court ruling on June 5 set aside Pinnick’s election and recognised Giwa as substantive chairman.
But on Monday, Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) stormed the offices of the Nigeria Football Federation to eject Giwa and his board stating that they were working on instructions from above.
The NFF Secretary General Muhammed Sanusi has since resumed office while Amaju Pinick who had been away supervising the CAF roundtable symposium on Africa’s performance at the recently-concluded 2018 Russia World Cup will return to Nigeria on Tuesday.
