Sports NFF's Amaju Pinnick & Chris Giwa in Fistfight During Meeting With Sports Minister



NFF President Amaju Pinnick on Wednesday engaged in a fight with his long time adversary, Chris Giwa during a meeting called by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Barr. Solomon Dalung.

Giwa had laid claim to the NFF top seat, saying he was duly elected after the August 26, 2014 controversial election in Abuja in which delegates massively boycotted. His petition at several courts had been thrown out and FIFA had since recognized Pinnick as NFF president.

However, the issue was revisited again on Wednesday during a meeting with Solomon Dalung.

Dalung, a known friend of Giwa back home from Plateau State, seemingly reopened the case and initiated an unnecessary peace move that turned out an anti-climax. between the two warring factions.

During the meeting, tempers rose, resulting in altercations from both men who called each other unprintable names.

But for the intervention of Dalung who sat in between the two angry men, the situation would have resulted in the two men using their fists as they wanted.

However, after the fracas which lasted for about five minutes, the meeting continued. After long hours of deliberation, the meeting was deadlocked. The Minister told reporters that the meeting will reconvene next week Wednesday.
