FG Withdraws Case Against Amaju Pinnick



The Federal Government has withdrawn the corruption charges against the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick and four other members of the NFF board.

The Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu on Tuesday, discharged and acquitted Pinnick, NFF Secretary, Sunusi Mohammed; the 1st Vice-President, Seyi Akinwumi; the 2nd Vice-President, Shehu Dikko and an Executive member, Yusuff Fresh.

This is following a revelation that the office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice wrote to withdraw the charges filed before the court by the disbanded Special Presidential and Investigation Panel.

Amaju and the four members were accused of misappropriating N4 billion without the approval of the NFF.
