FIFA in­ves­ti­gates Nige­ria’s Adamu

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Nige­ria’s Amos Adamu is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by FIFA for al­leged breach of the ethics code of the world foot­ball gov­ern­ing body.

FIFA pres­i­dent Sepp Blat­ter and former gen­eral sec­re­tary Jerome Val­cke are also be­ing probed.

Adamu, 62, was on the FIFA ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee for four years un­til 2010 when he was banned for three years from all foot­ball ac­tiv­ity.

He was banned over claims he asked for money in ex­change for World Cup votes.

His sus­pen­sion ended in Oc­to­ber 2013.

At a time, the one­time high-rank­ing Nige­rian sports min­istry of­fi­cial was touted as a suc­ces­sor to long-serv­ing Issa Hay­a­tou at the head of the Con­fed­er­a­tion of African Foot­ball (CAF).
