The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced the suspension of football official, Auwalu Baba Jada from all football-related activities, pending investigations into a video that has been trending online, in which he is apparently the principal character.

In the viral video, Mr. Jada was seen disclosing how he manipulated and fixed matches in the Nigeria elite football league.

Jada, a member of the newly inaugurated Interim Management Committee (IMC) to organise the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), said the only club he could not manipulate was MFM FC of Lagos.

The NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi announced the suspension in a statement issued to NATIONAL ACCORD on Tuesday in Abuja.

Dr. Sanusi said: “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”.
