In a 17-count charge, marked FHC/ABJ/CR/93/2019, filed by that panel before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday, the $8,400 in question was said to have been paid by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to the NFF as appearance fees in the group stage of the Russia 2018 World Cup.

The defendants were also accused of moving the sum of about N4bn “dishonestly and intentionally” which belonged to the NFF without the consent of the football federation in the country.
