Three members of the factional board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) headed by Chris Giwa, wednesday visited the NFF’s Glass House secretariat in Wuse Zone 7, Abuja, with the intension to take possession of the football house.

Sani Ferma, Dr Shehu Adamu and Yahaya Adama, who were elected at the disputed August 26, 2014 NFF Congress at Chida Hotel, in Abuja, capitalised on the withdrawal of the DSS operatives from NFF to attempt to take charge of the football secretariat .

Apparently acting on the order of the Presidency, the DSS on July 23, bundled out Giwa from the NFF and subsequently restored the board headed by Amaju Pinnick, to stave Nigeria of an impending ban from the international football federation (FIFA).

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, had said the international body recognised only Pinnick and perceived the prevailing move to remove him via the civil courts as an act of interference that could warrant a ban on Nigeria from international football.

But the sack of the DG of DSS, Lawan Daura by the federal government on Tuesday, over his role in the siege on the National Assembly, led to withdrawal of the DSS operatives from the premises of the football secretariat.

THISDAY learnt that it was the gap created by this withdrawal that offered the members of the Giwa group the courage to storm the NFF secretariat.

The ‘board members’ were accompanied by eight other stalwarts of the Giwa faction with Rumson Baribote and Ben Agary, among those in tow. (This Day)
