Nigerian Football Federation officials have laughed off threats by legal representatives of coach Sunday Oliseh, to sue the football ruling house over claims concerning payments made to Oliseh. This is a continuation of the war of words, which has trailed coach Oliseh’s sudden resignation from his post as Super Eagles coach.
The NFF had claimed that Oliseh collected his salary totalling N20m before he dropped the bombshell last weekend but Oliseh’s lawyers gave the NFF 48hours starting on Monday to retract the claims.
However, NFF’s head of communication department, Ademola Olajire said those were just empty threats as the Federation has proof of payments. “The NFF is not bothered by such threats. He can go to court. Oliseh is not the only one who has lawyers. The NFF has a legal department and it is ready,”Olajire said. It was gathered that money was paid on February 23 to the coach through a Sterling Bank account.
