Founder of a rival faction in the Nigerian Football Federation, Chris Giwa, has been banned from football-related activity worldwide by FIFA.
In May 2016, Giwa and four others in his group were banned by the NFF for five years for impersonation and taking football matters to a civil court.
The ban was for breaches of the NFF statutes and the FIFA code of ethics.
Giwa has since August 2014 insisted he was elected NFF president in a disputed vote that was not recognised by FIFA.
Giwa, Muazu Suleyman, Yahaya Adama, Sani Fema and Johnson Effiong were later suspended, and FIFA said in a statement on its website on Tuesday that the bans would apply worldwide.
However, Giwa intends to launch an appeal.
“They [FIFA] have not communicated to us directly and reading something on FIFA’s website is not a direct communication,” Giwa said.
“Once we hear from FIFA then we will take the necessary steps and we cannot rule out [filing an appeal with Court of Arbitration for Sport] over something so excessive.”
