Anti-corruption body investigates Nigeria football
Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency says it is investigating
current and former leaders of the nation’s football federation.
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission spokesman Femi Babafemi
has told The Associated Press that the investigation centers on
former president Sani Lulu and former vice president Amanze
Babafemi said Wednesday that investigators are also looking at
former technical committee member Taiwo Ogunjobi and current
general secretary Bolaji Ojo-Oba.
Babafemi made his comments after President Goodluck Jonathan
backed down on his threat to suspend the federation after Nigeria’s
poor performance at the World Cup.
FIFA had been set to sanction the country if Jonathan followed
through on his threat.
