Nigeria face suspension by FIFA over outside interference

Kaduna was the scene of heavy overcrowding during a 2017 Afcon qualifier in March 2016.
Nigeria could be suspended by FIFA over a recent court ruling.

ABUJA, Nigeria-- Nigeria face being suspended by FIFA for the third time since 2010 over a court ruling that ordered the removal of the head of the national football federation.

FIFA says it has sent a letter to the Nigerian Football Federation warning that if the ruling is implemented, it would be considered "interference.''

FIFA doesn't allow outside interference in the running of football federations.

FIFA says if NFF president Amaju Pinnick is removed, "the case would be brought to the highest authorities of FIFA for consideration of sanctions, including the suspension of the NFF.''

The court in the central city of Jos ruled last week that a 2014 NFF election, won by Pinnick, should be nullified.

Nigeria were briefly suspended by FIFA in 2010 and again in 2014 over government interference.
