Battered At NFF Presidential Election, Shehu Dikko Also Loses Abuja Home To Federal Government
The last 24 hours must rank as the worst ever for former LMC Chairman Shehu Dikko as he lost his Abuja home (PICTURED) and several other properties to the Federal Government yesterday before he finished a distant third at the NFF Presidential Elections in Benin City today.
Shehu Dikko could only record six votes in today’s Elections after he was widely referred to as the main favourite to replace his close ally Amaju Pinnick as NFF President.
The Election was instead won by Ibrahim Gusau after a run-off.
At the Election venue today, Shehu Dikko was a very broken man, he cut the image of a man in very serious trouble.
This was so because on Thursday, his Abuja home was seized by the anti-corruption agency ICPC.
Earlier this month, he ceased to be Chairman of the League Management Company (LMC) after the league organising outfit was scrapped by Government.
www.insideglasshouse.com learnt that the house came under permanent forfeiture Thursday.
“Seized by ICPC” was inscribed on the property.
The ICPC has therefore been granted an order by the court to seize the house.
The house on River Benue Street, Maitama, Abuja, was first sealed three years ago by the same ICPC.
Then ICPC warned the public to keep off the property as it was under investigation.
The agency said then it will seek interim forfeiture of the property as well as 14 others belonging to then NFF President Amaju Pinnick and several other NFF top officials.
ICPC said then that Shehu Dikko and the other officials have lived far above their means.
