BREAKING! Security Agents Take over NFF Secretariat


Soldiers and riot policemen who have been placed on red alert at the Secretariat of the Nigeria Football Federation in Abuja since Friday are not stopping people from entering the complex, popularly known as Glass House.
Eagle Online reports that no one except staff of the FRSC, properly identified despite spotting their uniforms, are being allowed in.
Sources said the soldiers and policemen were deployed to the Glass House by the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung.
The deployment of the security men to the Glass House followed a court order obtained on Thursday by the Proprietor of Giwa FC, Chris Giwa, who is laying claim to the presidency of the NFF.
Giwa on Sunday announced new members for the Board of the NFF.
He had vowed on Friday that he would resume at the Glass House on Monday.
The other faction, led by Amaju Pinnick, despite saying that no court order ousted it, has filed for a stay of execution of the court order.
A statement by Pinnick’s lawyer, Festus Keyamo, said there was no such order removing his client from office and there also was none pronouncing Giwa the president of the NFF.
While Pinnick is said to be eagerly awaiting the granting of the stay of execution of the now controversial court order, there were indications on Monday morning that the Giwa-led Board will likely meet in any of the major hotels in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
