President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick is in big trouble as he is being grilled by the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property.
Okoi Obono-Obla, chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel For The Recovery Of Public Property, has confirmed the interrogation… “The President of NFF was interrogated by our men, you know that we have several petitions against the NFF and we are inviting all those whose name was mentioned.”
“We have capable hands that will do everything possible to get to the end of the matter; if necessary they will be charge to Court.”
“Our power is derived from executive order 6. We have combined operatives drawn from all the anti-graft agencies including the Nigeria police, EFCC, ICPC, NIA and the likes.”
“It is not in my chairmanship that anyone mentioned will be excluded. The investigators have their way of doing things, I don’t interfere and I can assure you that anybody whose name has been mentioned will be investigated.”
We gathered that Pinnick and second Vice-President Shehu Dikko were interrogated for several hours in connection with conspiracy and an alleged case of diversion of public funds at the NFF.
Pinnick was reportedly directed by the panel not to travel overseas as he may still be needed for more questioning.
