Stephen Keshi drags NFF to court; ...demands N1billion compensation

Stephen Keshi drags the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to court for “wrongful dismissal and defamation.

The sacked Nigeria coach demands compensation of a billion naira (more than $400 million) from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for defaming him.

A top source told AfricanFootball: “Keshi’s lawyers have demanded for a billion naira from the NFF as compensation for defaming their client.”

The letter from the Kaduna-based law firm was said to have been received by the NFF on Friday.

Keshi was sacked by the NFF on July 5 after the NFF disciplinary committee investigated various allegations against him.

This was four months after the 53-year-old coach signed a new two-year contract after his initial three-year deal with the NFF ran out at last year’s World Cup in Brazil.
