The crises in the leadership of Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has taken another twist as former executive committee member, Bar. Chris Green has alleged a threat to his life, by saying that some people are after his life.
Green, as well as former NFF President, Aminu Maigari and General Secretary, Musa Amadu were all arrested by operatives of the department of state security (DSS) last Tuesday just before the NFF congress was to hold.
And revealing his ordeal to the House of Representatives committee on sports, Green claimed that he and Maigari barely escaped being assassinated.
“What we went through is not something anybody can be happy about, as we were detained for hours without any charges brought against us.
“When we were released at past 2am the following day, we handed over to a group of unknown and heavily armed men but we refused to get on board.
“Now I’m scared for my life because I know some people are out to kill me because we could have been assassinated that day,” he said.
Green also accused the sports minister of being the brain behind the NFF crises.
“The problem of Nigerian football right now is my brother, the sports minister and it is quite unfortunate that he’s not here today,” he told the House of Representatives committee on sports.
But Danagogo has severally denied being a part of the problem, and insisted that ‘We must ensure that peace is brought back to Nigerian football’.
