Authorities from Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has disclosed the suspension of Auwalu Baba Jada, a football league officer over allegations of match-fixing.
The accused is a member of the interim management committee, IMC, of the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL.
However, IsL source learned that Mohammed Sanusi, the NFF general secretary, reacting to the incident on Tuesday said the IMC member is suspended from all football-related activities, pending investigations into the footage.
He asserted that Auwalu summarily suspended from his membership of the Interim Management Committee of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
The statement reads; “Auwalu Baba Jada has been suspended from all football-related activities pending investigations into the video recording in which he is apparently the principal character.
“The investigations will be conducted by the ethics and integrity units of the Nigeria Football Federation.
“Auwalu Baba Jada will have no role in any football activity, event or programme until the investigations are concluded, and this also means he is summarily suspended from his membership of the Interim Management Committee of the Nigeria Professional Football League.”
