Renowned Lagos lawyer and solicitors to the Nigeria Football Federation, Festus Keyamo has debunked claims that the Federal High Court sitting in Jos sacked the Board of the NFF led by President Amaju Pinnick and installed Chris Giwa, describing it as total and complete falsehood.
The human rights lawyer said yesterday in a statement he personally signed that “What the so-called Chris Giwa is attempting to do is nothing but sheer brigandage and we shall be writing to all authorities concerned to arrest and prosecute him if he dares to take the laws into his hands.
The Minister of Sports must not also aid this sheer madness. Whoever wants to remove Amaju Pinnick and members of the NFF board from office must approach the court to join them as parties and must seek clear and positive Orders against each and everyone of them. The public and all football lovers must ignore this storm in a tea cup. There is simply NO COURT ORDER removing anybody from office”.
