Nigeria is at risk of another FIFA ban after a court declared the elections that ushered in Amaju Pinnick as president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) illegal.

World football governing body FIFA have warned that should anything hinder the newly-elected NFF executive committee led by Pinnick, the former Delta FA chairman, from operating, they will move for an automatic ban of Nigeria till the next FIFA congress in May.

On Thursday, Justice Ambrose Allagoa of the federal high court in central city of Jos ruled against the NFF elections in Warri of September 30 as well as the congress before it.

“I have set aside all the proceedings and decisions of the Warri extraordinary meeting of the 20th September and the elective congress of 30th September which were (in) direct contravention of the orders of this court as granted on the 19th September,” said the judge.
