NFF President Aminu Maigari who was detained has finally been freed along with fellow executive committee member Chris Green. He was released yesterday a day after he was arrested on Aug 26th.
“Maigari has been released by the security operatives. He was released in the morning from the special anti-robbery squad after he was handed to them by the Directorate of State Security Service. No charges were pressed against him, neither was he or Green questioned on anything. It was clearly to prevent them from attending the general assembly of Tuesday, which FIFA insisted be presided by Maigari.”” said an aide of the NFF boss.
Maigari who was detained, was further learnt that it was on orders of controversial former Rivers State police commissioner Joseph Mbu, who is now an assistant Inspector General of police. World football governing body FIFA is expected to soon rule on the unfolding drama in Nigeria
