Nigeria’s top security chiefs have been asked by the House of Representatives to explain why Nigeria Football Federation president, Aminu Maigari was detained without any charges brought against him.

Maigari’s detention stopped him from presiding over the NFF general assembly on Tuesday, africanFootball.com reports.

However, the NFF president has said he would not to take any legal action for his unlawful arrest, saying God will remain his refuge.

Several football stakeholders in Nigeria spoke at a Friday public hearing called by the House of Representatives to address the crisis.

The chairman of the NFF technical committee, Chris Green, gave a graphic account of their harrowing experience at the anti-robbery squad cells in Abuja, where he and Maigari were kept on Tuesday.

“It was a most dehumanising ordeal,” said Green, whose narration caused several of those attending the hearing to weep.

Chairman of Nigeria Coaches’ Association, Bitrus Bewarang, equally produced a Plateau State White paper which indicted Chris Giwa.

He closed his presentation by warning this revelation would put his life in danger.
