NFF suspends Former Wikki Tourist Chairman for match-fixing


Nigerian football official Auwalu Baba Jada has been suspended by the Nigerian Football Federation and has also been relieved of his duties in the LMC pending the completion of an investigation into a video evidence where he admits to compromising an NPFL match.

The former head of competition of the NPFL was caught on camera talking about how he manipulated and fixed certain matches in the NPFL.

Jada has since been suspended from all football-related activities pending the completion of the investigation.

As revealed by the General Secretary of the NFF, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, the suspect Auwala Baba Jada will no longer be involved in the decision-making of the Nigerian League Interim Management Committee and has been suspended indefinitely.

“Auwalu Baba Jada has been suspended from all football-related activities pending investigations into the video recording in which he is apparently the principal character. The investigations will be conducted by the ethics and integrity units of the Nigeria Football Federation.

“Auwalu Baba Jada will have no role in any football activity, event or programme until the investigations are concluded, and this also means he is summarily suspended from his membership of the Interim Management Committee of the Nigeria Professional Football League.”
