The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, and a claimant to his seat and owner of Giwa FC, Barrister Chris Giwa, on Wednesday exchanged blows over who is the rightful head of the football body.
Pinnick and Giwa fought in the office of the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, who had them for an amicable resolution of the crisis in the football house.
The bone of contention on Wednesday at the meeting in Abuja was the interruption of the speech of Pinnick by Giwa during the meeting.
Pinnick alleged that while Giwa spoke, he did not interrupt him.
But as soon as he began speaking, Giwa started interjecting.
This first resulted into a heated argument before they exchanged blows.
It got to a point that Dalung threatened to get the two men arrested by security operatives within the Ministry’s premises.
