A top official of the EFCC, confirmed this during the week, insisting that the accounts will remain under the watchful eyes of the agency as the trial of the four former top officials was still on.


EFCC Head of Media and Publicity, Femi Babafemi, said since the investigation and trial were ongoing against the quartet of former NFF president, Sani Lulu, Amanze Uchegbulam, Taiwo Ogunjobi and Bolaji Ojo_Oba, the accounts will remain under the commission’s watch list.

There is an ongoing investigation into the activities of the Nigeria Football Federation or Nigeria Football Association as you may call it.

So those accounts remain frozen until investigation are concluded in this matter,” said Babafemi. Three accounts allegedly belonging to the NFF was frozen in July this year by the EFCC.
