A fire occurred today 20th August at the Nigeria Football Federation office located at
Wuse Zone 7, behind the Federal Road Safety Corps Headquarters (FRSC) in Abuja.
The mysterious fire reportedly started from the office of the General Secretary, Musa Amadu on the top floor. The office of the President which is also on the same floor is also affected.
As at the time of filing this report, it could not be ascertained what caused the fire outbreak with some observer labelling the incident “arson” considering the top echelon of the body is being investigated for corruption.
NFF has been in crisis for months now, leading to the suspension of President Aminu Maigari.
However, after weeks of horse- trading, Maigari, returned to office on Monday in line with the directive of FIFA to reinstate him.
It seems like a pretty strange time for a fire to come up.It has been known in the past that when Nigerian officials want to cover corrupt practices,they burn the evidence! Not saying thats what happened here,but it strange timing all the same with all the happenings at the NFF currently.
