The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Friday that it had noted some media reports arising from a BBC documentary involving the coach of the Super Eagles, Salisu Yusuf.

“For now, the NFF has commenced preliminary investigation into the matter to assist the Committee on Ethics and Fairplay,” NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, said.

The country’s apex football body further reaffirmed consent via a social media post.

The BBC had shown a video showing Yusuf taking bribe from men posing as football agents to two Nigerian players.

The footage was captured by Ghanaian journalist, Anas Aremeyew Anas, in September 2017 and was broadcast by BBC Africa Eye.

Salisu is Super Eagles’ number two manager behind Gernot Rohr.

He has handled the home-based senior side and was billed to take charge of the Under-23 side.
