Giwa Arrested At NFF Headquarters … Vows To Resume Monday

The contest for the leadership of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) continued on Friday as factional leader, Chris Giwa and his members took over the federation’s headquarters in Abuja. This is even as the embattled Giwa FC proprietor vowed to resume formally at the glass house on Monday, saying he was not arrested.

This happened after a bailiff had served a court judgment from the Federal High Court Jos on the NFF General Secretary.

Giwa walked into the Zone 7 premises of the NFF at about 4:00pm despite the presence of a police van placed there to keep him and his faction out of the building.

He spent about 30 minutes in the building and granted interviews to journalists as well as trying to take charge of administrative duties before a detachment of policemen asked him to leave the premises.

He was escorted by policemen, who led him to the Divisional Headquarters, Wuse Zone 3, Abuja.
