The Nigeria Football Association has alerted the minister of sports and chairman, National Sports Commission, Isa Bio, the law enforcement agencies and indeed, Nigerians on an alleged plan by a group of persons to cause civil unrest today, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
A terse text message from the media officer of the NFA, Ademola Olajire, toÂ Sports Vanguard stated that the association had alerted the minister on plans by some â€œfaceless, spineless persons to foist disquiet on the FCT on Monday, using the name of the federation.â€
The NFA outrightly distanced itself from the alleged plan and denied emphatically that, â€œthe elements with devious motives were neither members nor affiliates of the federation.â€
Explaining further, Olajire said the intention of the group was to cause unnecessary tension by â€œdisrupting the peace in a week the nation was excitedly looking forward to sending the Super Eagles off to the World Cup finals.â€
Sports Vanguardâ€™s independent sources hinted that the group has been â€œhired by some people with political ambition to cause civil disturbance using the name of the NFA.â€
