Police Stops Rival Group From Disrupting Protest Against Pinnick, NFF
The Nigerian Police was alive to its responsibilities today when it stopped a rival group from infiltrating a peaceful protest demanding for the resignation of President Amaju Pinnick and the entire NFF Executive Committee after the Super Eagles failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
The rival group led by a former Nigeria youth international, who is based in South Korea and has benefitted from contracts at the NFF, had planned to join the protest and that way cause violence that would have led to the arrest of those who championed the peaceful march against the NFF.
“The police kept them away from the real group and at the Unity Fountain they were simply locked out,” a source informed www.insideglasshouse.com
The protesters staged a little rally at the Unity Fountain during which their leaders spoke about the instituitionalised corruption at the NFF, which has caused the country’s No 1 sport to suffer from one setback to another under the watch of Amaju Pinnick in the last eight years.
