World football governing body, FIFA has slammed a two year suspension on former executive committee member Amos Adamu.

FIFA’s adjudicatory chamber of independent Ethics Committee, found the Nigerian guilty of violating rules bordering on loyalty and conflicts of interest under its code of ethics.

This follows Adamu’s involvement in organising an event in 2010, while being a member of FIFA’s Executive Committee.

This development means Adamu who had earlier served a three year ban, will stay away from “football-related activities” within and outside Nigeria for another two years.

The ban takes effect from Tuesday, February 28.

  • POLITICAL ASSASSINATION IN KATSINA-ALA LGA, BENUE STATE
    By Lizzy Clement
    Tragedy struck, Thursday, as some gunmen killed one Ugoh Terseer Akagbue, an Assistant Registrar with the College of Education, Katsina-Ala, Benue State, and abducted another man in the same Local Government Area of the state.
    Sunday Sun gathered that the gunmen invaded the late Akagbue’s residence in the early hours of the fateful day and shot him dead in the presence of his wife and children and made away with his vehicle, money, handsets and some other valuable documents belonging to the college.
    Provost of the College, Professor Mathias Nder, who confirmed the sad incident, lamented the unfortunate killing of his staff, adding that he had since reported the incident to the police. He, therefore, appealed to security agents to do everything within their powers to arrest the perpetrators.
    The state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Moses Yamu, described the incident as a suspected case of kidnap, adding that the suspects shot the victim and robbed him of his vehicle which they later used in conveying one other victim, one Tersoo Burga.
    According to him, luck ran out on the suspected kidnappers, as the police acting on a tip off, pursued and engaged them in a gun duel along Katsina- Ala- Takum road. When the gun battle became fierce, he said, the gunmen abandoned both the snatched vehicle and their kidnapped victim, Burga, and took to their heels.

    FALSE
    According to the alligator he said the next morning, the PPRO further explained, the police found one of the kidnappers, Aondongu Shaapera dead at the scene of the gun battle. He was said to have died of gunshot injuries.
    TRUTH
    While, Mr. Aondongu Shaapera (APC Chairman Katsina-Ala LGA) was shot in his family house at Sati-Agirigi Mbamo-Kpav Katsina-Ala LGA around 5:50am on Thursday. And on that very day as at 2:00pm two young men went to Mr. Aondongu Shaapera house and told him that they are there for him. Then after shooting of the said Aondongu Shaapera, the police men came and arrested one of the young men that visited Mr. Aondongu Shaapera and therefore the police men interrogated the cuprites why he went to Mr. Aondongu Shaapera house as at 2:00pm and the cuprites responded that he went there to eat food and immediately he was released without further interrogation or investigation.
    Thereafter, as at 5:50am Mr. Aondongu Shaapera was shot in his house by those gunmen. Therefore the gunmen ordered the junior brother of Mr. Aondongu Shaapera (who slept with him in the same room that day) named Terngu Piler to direct them where to get fuel and he did, of which they bought the fuel at the rate of N2000 and they get the fuel in Musa Ada house (fuel seller) and the gunmen directed the fuel seller to take the fuel to their vehicle which they used for operation.
    Immediately after the gunmen left, then Mr. Aondongu Shaapera was rushed to Katsina-Ala Police station by Mr. Musa Ada and Abraham Nyiikwagh and reported the incident that took place and the Police assigned Mr. Sesugh (a Police Officer) to take him to the Nguhegh Clinic Katsina-Ala Town and even before taking him to hospital, late Mr. Aondongu Shaapera made a conversation with Mr. Sesugh (the assigned police officer) in the car on their way to the hospital mentioning “Mr. Tor Abaji” the person that sent the gunmen to go after him.
    Moreover, in reaching the hospital, the gave him first aid treatment and the doctor referred him to Federal Medical Centre Makurdi and while making an arrangement to convey him to the Federal medical centre he then pass away.
    THIS IS TO CLARIFY THE GENERAL PUBLIC THAT MR. AONDONGU SHAAPERA WAS SHOT IN HIS OWN HOUSE BY THE UNKNOWN GUNMEN.

    1. Why the PPRO released one of the young men that visited Mr. Aondongu Shaapera in his house as at 2:00Pm without further interrogation?
    2. What were the two young men doing in Mr. Aondongu Shaapera house as at that hour of night?
