Self-appointed leader of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Chris Giwa on Friday, June 3 stormed the Glass House to harass the staff.

Giwa has always claimed that the September, 2014 election which put current president of the NFF Amaju Pinnick in office was faulty but his case has been ruled out by FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

A wrong court order sacked Pinnick as NFF boss and ruled Giwa as president. Although that order has been faulted, Giwa has insisted that he is the president of the NFF and has tried forcing himself into office.

According to the NFF, Giwa and his group caused a scene at the headquarters on Friday.

"Pandemonium at NFF as Giwa and group storm Glass House with thugs to harass Staff members. Police telling them to go out," the NFF revealed via Twitter.


"Giwa and group proving stubborn. Staff members telling them to leave Glass House. Only 24 hours after peace meeting at NASS."


The NFF a fortnight ago handed Giwa a five-year suspension and four-year suspensions for his board members, a decision that has been upheld by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
