DSS Chases Giwa Out Of NFF Secretariat

Chris Giwa, the factional president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has been reportedly asked to vacate the premises of the NFF by the Department of State Service (DSS).

Giwa and his board members, who occupied the NFF Secretariat on July 2, were asked to quit on Monday.

World football governing body (FIFA) had threatened to ban Nigeria if the crises in NFF were not resolved and Amaju Pinnick not reinstated as president.

The DSS operatives, who carried out the ejection exercise on Monday, as reported by The Cable, said that they were working on instructions from above.

A few hours after the exercise, Muhammed Sanusi, Secretary-General of the NFF, was led to his office by the DSS operatives, where he fully resumed as the administrative head of the football federation secretariat in Nigeria.

The president’s office was also cleared in readiness for the resumption of Pinnick who will return to Nigeria on Tuesday.

Pinnick had been away supervising the CAF roundtable symposium on Africa’s performance at the recently concluded 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
