Amaju Pinnick, President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and his second Vice, Shehu Dikko are in trouble and may soon be arrested.
This is because the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has launched investigation into alleged corrupt activities at the NFF under Pinnick’s leadership.
Consequently, ICPC on Friday sealed a mansion belonging to the NFF boss and former CAF Vice President in Lagos pending conclusion of ongoing investigation.
The mansion is located at Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos state.
In the same vein, the residence of the second vice, who doubles as the chairman of the League Management Company of Nigeria, Shehu Dikko at Maitama, Abuja has also been sealed.
Prompt News Online reports that the leadership of the NFF has been facing series of corruption allegations lately.
“ICPC places under investigation, mansion belonging to Amaju Pinnick, President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) located in Park View Estate, Lagos.
“The Commission has also placed a mansion in Maitama, Abuja, belonging to Shehu Dikko, 2nd Vice President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Chairman of League Management Company of Nigeria, under investigation,” the anti-graft agency tweeted via its official twitter handle @ICPC_PE.
