The Abuja residence of Shehu Dikko, 2nd vice-president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has been placed under investigation by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

The house is on River Benue, Maitama, Abuja.

According to the ICPC, the investigation is to uncover financial malpractices in the football association, allegedly involving Dikko and other executives.

Rasheedat Okoduwa, ICPC spokesperson, told TheCable that Dikko’s property was placed under investigation following fresh corruption charges against him and some other executives of the NFF.

“It is true that ICPC sealed Shehu Dikko’s Maitama residence this morning,” she said.

“He is being investigated with others over fresh corruption charges. It has nothing to do with the cases of SPIP or EFCC.”

The NFF has been on the watch-list of the anti-corruption agencies. The federation is also currently under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Special Presidential Investigation Panel on Recovery of Public Property (SPIP).

The executives of the federation have been accused of diverting funds meant for the association.
