Fire guts Nigeria's FA Building
Fire today gutted the office of the Nigeria Football Federation located at Wuse Zone 7, behind the Federal Road Safety Corps Abuja office.
The fire is reported to have started from the office of the General Secretary, Musa Amadu on the top floor and affected the office of the President which is also on the same floor.
The cause of the fire has not yet been ascertained, but there are unconfirmed reports that it could be the handiwork of arsonists, who might want to cover up some evidence in ongoing corruption investigation.
Crisis in the NFF climaxed with the suspension of President Aminu Maigari.
Maigari has however been returned to office following an order from the Federation of International Football associations FIFA.
