A source in the ethics committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) told TheCable that Salisu has been found guilty of receiving “cash gift” to field certain players at the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.

He was also promised 15 percent of the players’ contract fee if they are signed by a foreign club.

The video clip of the alleged transaction, which was made public by BBC African Eye on July 24, showed the coach receiving the sum of $1000 from undercover reporters led by Anas Arameyaw Anas.

The meeting took place in Ghana during the 2017 WAFU Cup where Nigeria finished second after losing the final 4-1 to host Ghana.
