Sacked Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has reportedly dragged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to court asking it to pay him a compensation of a billion naira for defamation.
Last week, AfricanFootball reported that the former Super Eagles coach has dragged the federation to court for “wrongful dismissal and defamation”.
A top source told the media house: “Keshi’s lawyers have demanded for a billion naira from the NFF as compensation for defaming their client.”
The NFF received the letter from the Kaduna-based law firm on Friday.
Keshi was fired as the national team coach on July 5, after a disciplinary committee found him guilty of applying for the vacant Ivory Coast job.
