Multi Billion Naira Scam at Football House: Lulu, Ogunjobi, Amos Adamu may face EFCC...
There are indications that the sacked cabal at the fraud ridden Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Sanni Lulu, , his close ally, and chairman technical committee, Taiwo Ogunjobi, VP Amanze Uchegbulam, Secretary General, Bolajo Ojo-Oba, and former Director of Sports, Amos Adamu may be dragged before the EFCC for various allegations of fraud at the Glass house.
Lulu, Ogunjobi, and Uchegbulam were impeached on Sunday afternoon. Aminu Maigari and Obinna Ogba would hold forte as president and vice.
President Goodluck Jonathan has directed Nigeria stays away from competitive football for two years while an audit of the books has been ordered by him from 2006 to date.
This is coming on the heels of questions being raised by sports loving Nigerians as to why Ogunjobi, former chairman, 3SC Football Club Limited, who was dismissed in 1998 by the Oyo State government for incompetence, and mismanagement of funds, got the technical committee job in the first place.
The NFF trio allegedly blew N1.25 Billion on Nigeria's preparation and participation in the 2010 world cup in South Africa, they will also among others explain what happened to $400,000 that varnished under Lulu and his men, during the 2008 Nations Cup. The National sports Commission(NSC), got N350 million from the world cup largesse, for reasons yet to be determined.
Lulu who went to South Africa with a 30 men delegation including his wives, spent $700 a night for his entourage at the Waterfront Hotel, Richard Bay.
Adamu who was Directors of Sports for 10 years , but sacked in 2008 under mysterious circumstances, may also be asked to explain what happened to the N37 Billion spent on the 8 th African Games, with COJA.
Ogunjobi's dismissal letter dated, February 8, 1998, and signed by the State's Military administrator, Ahmed Usman, said the state was dissatisfied with Ogunjobi's general conduct as a public officer . The letter with ref# SP/C.201/21/4/T.I.231, said further”…your continued employment in the service of the state as Deputy Director/ Chairman 3SC Football Club Limited, would not be in the public interest…you are hereby dismissed from the public service of Oyo State with immediate effect…”
Adamu who was also Director General of the Nigeria Sports Commission NSC) for a decade, and wanted the Abuja stadium sold after the African Games, had protected Lulu, Ogunjobi, Uchegbulam, and Bolaji Ojo-Oba for years while the looting continued.
Pointblanknews.com learnt that Adamu who is a member of FIFA 24 man executive committee, ensure members like Peter Singabele, and second VP, Oyuki Obaseki were pushed aside when they queries the style of the Lulu led cabal.
Obaseki was despised by the cabal when he queried moves by the cabal to share the Globacom cash given to the National Professional league (NPL)
Adamu was also instrumental to the removal of Ibrahim Galadima, while Ogunjobi served as his scribe.
