MATCH-FIXING PROBE: Auwalu Baba Jada Legal Team Floors NFF
Axed IMC Member Auwalu Baba Jada has led a team of four lawyers that took on the NFF Integrity Unit headed by Okey Obi.
On Tuesday, Baba Jada appeared before the Integrity Unit to defend himself against match-fixing allegations in the NPFL.
His legal representatives took to task the Integrity Unit.
They admitted that the image in the video that went viral on social media was that of their client, but not necessarily his voice.
The lawyers demanded for the petitioner in this case so that they could cross-examin him.
They further questioned the suspension of Baba Jada from the IMC, arguing that it was done in haste as he has not be proved guilty and was entitled to fair hairing.
They also questioned the competence of the NFF Secretariat because so far their client has yet to receive a letter suspending him.
The NFF Secretariat has already bungled on the procedure for this match-fixing investigation including asking the accussed person to provide the main evidence against him, the viral video.
