There are strong indications that the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) may pick the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) any time from now.
This is because the Sports Ministry has asked the Commission to probe the mountain of corruption allegations leveled against the football federation.
A top government source hinted on Thursday that the government has asked the Commission to probe the football financial dealings over sometime and wondered why the EFCC has not acted.
The source further revealed that the fire that engulfed the secretariat of the NFF on Wednesday may not be unconnected with the probe that was expected to have started.
"I am surprised that the EFCC has not commenced investigation of the NFF. May be the action has been stopped," the source said.
However, the government according to another source is baffled at the fire that razed the secretariat, though the government is yet to make its position known.
Efforts to confirm the veracity of the government letter proved abortive as the EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwajurien denied knowledge of such letter to the commission.
