Chris Giwa has reportedly taken charge, again, at the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, secretariat.
This is due to the withdrawal of officers of the Department of State Security Service, DSS, on Wednesday.
According to the report, Giwa resumed duties as head of the football house after the officers withdrew, following the sacking of the DSS director, Mamman Daura on Tuesday, by the acting-president of Nigeria, vice president Yemi Osinbajo.
“We are back in control of the secretariat. The acting general secretary, Emmanuel Ikpeme, is here and so are the other board members,” a member of the Giwa faction said.
Giwa and Amaju Pinnick are engaged in a tussle for presidency at the NFF.
The Plateau state born football administrator was sacked by men of the DSS last month, forcing him out and reinstating the Amaju Pinnick board.
Pinnick, Mohammed Sanusi and members of his board are said to be away in France with the junior women national team who are participating in the U-20 World Cup.
