Self-proclaimed president of the Nigeria Football Federation Chris Giwa stormed the NFF secretariat on Friday promising to resume as the NFF president in the new week.
He claimed he was in the office to enforce a Jos court ruling that he should take over the NFF.
There are lingering legal issues between Giwa and his loyalists, on the one hand, and the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF with no seeming end in sight, even after a Jos High Court agreed to relist against the NFF for later this month.
Giwa stormed the Glass House in Abuja with a number of his board members, promising to resume on Monday. It almost developed into another thing entirely, as policemen were quickly called in to escort him out.
The owner of Nigeria premier league club Giwa FC was then driven away in his vehicle, with the police vehicles in tow.
It was unclear where they headed as the police officers refused to say. Chris Giwa emerged as the president of the NFF in an election marred by controversies on August 26, 2014, in Abuja.
Another election, which was endorsed by world football governing body FIFA followed a month later in Warri, which then produced Amaju Pinnick as NFF boss
