Report reaching News24 Nigeria alleged that sports minister Tammy Danagogo was behind Maigari’s latest arrest, as he did not want the administrator to re-contest in the forthcoming NFF election.
Among major agendas to be discussed at the general assembly is to fix a date for the next election into executive offices of the NFF, in the next two weeks.
It would be recalled that Maigari was arrested on return from Brazil after Nigeria’s Round of 16 ouster from the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
