Journalists atr the NFF entrrance in Abuja

The head office of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has been
cordoned off by police to forestall a breakdown of law and order,
according to officials.
Staff members of the NFF and the private security guards have been
sent away by the police.
This followed Friday’s court order nullifying the September 2014
elections of the NFF executive committee led by President Amaju
Pinnick.
A rival group led by Chris Giwa threatened to resume work at the
office on Monday after they announced new managerial changes at the
secretariat.
Pinnick said they will appeal the court ruling, while also applying
for a stay of execution on the matter.
This third-party inference could lead to world football governing
banning the country as it enters another round of leadership tussle.
Two years ago, a group led by Giwa took their case to court before it
was withdrawn as a result of a threat of a ban by FIFA.

    They all know what they are gaining from that place, that’s why they are fighting each other. If @ all FIFA want to ban us let them do so & let us rest
