share on:

Aminu Maigari, the president of the Nigerian Football Federation, has been arrested in Abuja.

SSS operatives reportedly arrested Maigari and other board members on their return from the World Cup in Brazil.

This comes after Maigari and the entire NFF board were sacked by a court order that prevents them from representing the NFF.

The suit was filed by former Nigeria Premier League chairman Rumson Baribote, who requested the court to restrain Maigari and all the committee and congress of the NFF from managing the affairs of football matters in Nigeria.

Hon. Justice P. L Lot of the Plateau State High Court sitting in Jos granted the Order of Interlocutory Injunction restraining the president of the NFF, the executive committee members as well as the NFF Congress from running affairs of Nigerian football pending the determination of the Motion on Notice before the court.
