NFF crisis: Pinnick petitions IGP

 .Wants Giwa arrested 

By GEORGE ALUO 

PRESIDENT of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has sent a petition to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) over the lingering crisis rocking the soccer federation.

Pinnick in the petition signed by his lawyer, Festus Keyamo demanded the arrest of Chris Giwa who has gone to court to seek the annulment of the election that brought in the incumbent NFF board. The petition read in part: “In the last few days, one Chris Giwa has threatened to take over the occupation of the Headquarters of the Nigerian Football Federation, citing a non-existent court order in that respect. “

The petitioner further alleged Giwa has indeed taken steps to carry out his threat by attempting to force his way into the headquarters of the NFF on Friday, April 8.

“Kindly note that, there  is no court order anywhere, mandating the said Chris Giwa to take over any office or duties of the NFF,” Pinnick stated in his petition.

It would be noted that the NFF Congress had at an emergency extra ordinary meeting held Wednesday in Abuja resolved that Giwa and his allies face the soccer federation’s disciplinary board.

Some other members of the Giwa group were also ordered to appear before the NFF Ethics committee.

The Congress also passed a vote of confidence in the Amaju-led board, even as the League Management Company (LMC) got a p at on the back for taking the domestic league to the next level with the introduction of several innovations that makes it attractive to the corporate world and potential sponsors.
