The EFCC has taken 3 officials of the NFF to court over financial crimes committed between January 8 and 26, 2015.

Well, not going to say much about this but let's see what comes out of the trial.

Quote:
The Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday dragged three finance officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to an FCT High Court at Maitama over an alleged fraud.

The NFF officials, Christopher Andekin (Director of Administration and Finance), Reagan Zaka (Cashier) and Fadanari Mamza (Head, Finance and Account Department) are accused of mishandling $9.5 million and $1.3 million.

They have been charged by EFCC on a five-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy, breach of trust and misappropriation of funds.

The prosecutor, Steve Odiase told the court that the three defendants conspired between January 8 and 26, 2015 to commit the offences, contrary to Section 97 of Penal Code.

Odiase also alleged that Andekin was entrusted with a grant from the world body, Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), which he said was money meant for development of football in Nigeria.

He alleged that Andekin diverted $1.3 million from NFF’s domiciliary account with Zenith Bank, contrary to section 311 of the Penal Code.

He further alleged that Zaka diverted a $7.2 million grant from FIFA that was also meant for development of football in Nigeria, while also stating that Mamza did same to $2.3 million

The defendants all pleaded not guilty to the charges, and their counsel, Arinze Egbo applied for their bail.

The Judge, Justice Peter Affen upheld the administrative bail granted to them earlier by the EFCC.

Before adjourning the case until November 27, the judge ordered that the defendants’ sureties should sign bond with registrar of the court, and also
deposit their international passports with the court.

They should look at it some more. That place is a corrupton sesspool.
If and when there's a complete forensic audit of that place, folks will and should be found criminally responsible.

I am not surprised these people did what they are accused of if the story is true. I mean, why wouldn't they when anyone can steal and get away with it; or when caught, is/are made to ONLY return a portion? Lately, I see the thieves - in an attempt to fight back - accuses the EFCC of targeting them and et al. Thus, ...

EFCC is always charging. When is the sentencing? That’s where we never seem to get to.

The charging is nothing more than a fishing expedition. It's an indefinite legal fishing expedition to find crap on NFF bigwigs. I guess if they keep digging, they' ll probably find something on Pinnick (Main target :lol: :lol: ).
