Outgoing President of Nigeria Football Federation, Aminu Maigari has been arrested by men of the Department of State Service (DSS).
He was said to have been arrested earlier in on Tuesday, 26th August, 2014, alongside with the General Secretary of the federation, Musa Amadu and Christopher Green.
As at the time of filling this report, the reason the three men were arrested could not be ascertained.
The development temporarily put the General Assembly billed to kick-off by 2.00 pm in Abuja on hold.
The state Football Association Chairmen are now fuming over the arrest, insisting that the Congress would not hold unless Maigari is allowed to preside over it.
On Monday, 25th August, 2014, the Minister of Sports, Tammy Danagogo, formally acknowledged the receipt of Maigari’s resignation letter dated August 12, 2014, with effect from August 26, 2014.
A statement by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Minister, Patrick Omorodion, noted that the tenure of Maigari-led board ended on midnight of Monday, 25th August, 2014.
