Lagos - President of the disbanded executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation Aminu Maigari is very careful not to attract further hammer from the Nigerian court.
Maigari and his executive members were ousted from office by a law court that was followed by an arrest of the president by members of the State Security Service on arrival from Brazil after the Super Eagles crashed out of the 2014 FIFA World Cup following a 2-0 defeat to France in the Round of 16.
Maigari was reportedly arrested and questioned for a missing 90 000 dollars meant for the players.
A phone call put through to the ousted president on Thursday met a harsh response.
“My friend, do you want me to talk and be charged for contempt of court?” Maigari queried.
FIFA on Wednesday banned Nigeria from participating in any international competition until the sacked board in reinstated.
FIFA said the move was paramount following violation of its rules that prevent government from interfering in football matters.
