Assistant coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Salisu Yusuf has been banned for one year from all football related activities by the ethics committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The committee headed by former EFCC boss Mallam Nuhu Ribadu sat on Tuesday night in Katsina where they deliberated on the video that went viral on Salisu Yusuf receiving money from reporters who disguised to be agents.
In a statement made available to Legit.ng by the NFF media department, Salisu Yusuf's defense to the allegation was rubbished by the NFF committee.
He has also been told to pay a fine in the sum of $5,000 to the Federation within three months in which Yusuf has no right to appeal the decision.
The NFF also made it clear that what coach Salisu Yusuf did in the video has a damaging effect on the reputation and integrity of Nigerian Football.
Salisu Yusuf is now expected to be replaced at the Super Eagles by Elkanemi-Warriors coach Imama Amakapabo ahead of the Super Eagles 2019 next AFCON qualifying game.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Nigeria head coach Salisu Yusuf was caught on camera collecting money from an undercover journalist posing as football agents to select two of their players for the 2018 African Nations Championship which was staged in Morocco earlier this year.
Nigeria got to the final of the championship for the first time at the 5th edition of the tournament but lost 4-1 to the host nation and settle down for silver medal.
