The subject matter of the appeal file by the League Management Company (LMC) against the order of a Plateau State High Court, Jos has been validated by an Appeal Court in the same city.

Justice I. I. Kunda of the Plateau State High Court in Jos had ordered the arrest of LMC chairman, Shehu Dikko over his refusal to reinstate Giwa FC to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The LMC have challenged the orders and also filed a stay of execution at the Court of Appeal.

At the hearing of the appeals, the Court of Appeal directed that it was going to hear all appeals and motions filed by the LMC on the same date.

According to the NFF, four persons who introduced themselves as detectives from the FCT Police Command were at the office of the LMC ostensibly to arrest its chairman, Dikko, who is also NFF 2nd Vice President and its COO, Alhaji Salihu Abubakar.

After the attempted arrest, the Court of Appeal, Jos Division, on Monday directed that there should be no attempt to tamper with the subject matter of the appeal file by the LMC against the orders of Justice I.I. Kunda of the Plateau State High Court, Jos.

The court of appeal also ruled that Barrister Maduabuchi cannot represent the NFF in the case.

Maduabuachi was appointed by Yahaya Adama, an ally of self-imposed NFF boss, Chris Giwa.

Giwa is still battling his claim to be the boss of the NFF at the Supreme Court.

The Court of Appeal adjourned the matter to October 11, 2016, to hear the consolidated appeal and all motions and objections filed by the parties.
