It appears the Confederation of African Football Association, CAF is now interested in the Giwa / Amaju Pinnick power tussle at the NFF Glass House. The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has slammed Barrister Chris Giwa with a five year ban confirming the initial sanction by the Nigeria Football Federation.
Giwa and four others, Muazu Suleyman, Yahaya Adama, Sani Fema and Johnson Effiong are to face the continental ban for a period of five years each.
