• The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has banned Nigeria assistant coach Salisu Yusuf over bribery incident and fined $5000

The NFF has placed a one–year ban from all football-related activities on Super Eagles’ Chief Coach, Salisu Yusuf.

The 56-year-old Super Eagles coach has been sanctioned by the country’s football governing body after he was found guilty of receiving a bribe

This follows the adoption of a report by the NFF Committee on Ethics and Fair Play.

As contained in a statement on Wednesday, the committee considered the complaint by the NFF as well as the coach’s defence of a video documentary in which he was seen accepting $1,000 bribe from an undercover reporter, Ghanaian Aremeyaw Anas, posing as a player’s agent.

The NFF, in the statement by its spokesperson, Demola Olajire, said it had accepted the report and approved the committee’s recommendation.

The coach has also been told to pay a fine of $5,000 to the Federation within three months.
