The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have given Super Eagles coach Salisu Yusuf a one year ban from all football-related activities for allegedly taking a bribe to select players.
Yusuf was caught on camera collecting N357,000 ($1,000) from journalists posing as football agents who wanted him to select two players for the 2018 African Nations Championship(CHAN).
The coach who was invited to face the NFF Ethics Committee Yusuf has been given a one year ban from all football-related activities and fined $5000.
In a report submitted to the NFF Secretariat on Tuesday, September 4, the Committee says they found the coach guilty of accepting cash gift offered by the fake football agents on behalf of Osas Okoro and Rabiu Ali.
The Committee also believes that Yusuf made a deliberate decision to accept the cash gift and ruled that it was not an error of judgment on the part of the coach.
The Committee also found the video which was made public by BBC African Eye has a damaging effect on the reputation and integrity of Nigerian football.
The decision of the Committee to ban and fine Yusuf is in accordance with Art 22, FIFA Disciplinary Code.
The $5000 fine is to be paid within three months of the date of the decision.
