Maigari has been released, says NFA Faction member

28 August 2014, 09:04

Abuja - Aminu Maigari, the immediate-past Board Chairman of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), has been released by the Department of State Security (DSS), an official said on Wednesday in Abuja.
Ephraim Chukwuemeka, a member of the three-man Interim Committee set up by a faction of the NFA congress on Tuesday, told newsmen that Maigari was released on Wednesday morning.

The media recalls that Maigari was invited for questioning by the DSS at around noon on Tuesday.

“As of now, I can confirm that Maigari has been released this morning,” Chukwuemeka said.
The interim committee was set up by a faction of the NFA General Assembly, after it broke away from the event following Maigari’s arrest about an hour earlier on Tuesday.
The faction had mandated the committee to work with the association’s secretariat until the conduct of the NFA elections on September 4.
