The president of the National Association of Nigerian Footballers (NANF), Harrison Jalla, has unmasked how the embattled Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, laundered the proceeds of the 2014 World Cup funds, Sportswaka reports.
According to gongnews.net Jalla said, “In the course of a three-page 76 items fictitious and bogus retirement to FIFA on how the 2014 world cup FIFA grant to Nigeria through Zenith Bank USD account number 5070407455 was spent.
“Amaju Pinnick on item 40 and 41 on the retirement list claimed that on the 12th March 2015 he remitted to JER TRADE CONSULTING through BSI BANK account number 14655888 the sum of 240,000 USD as part payment for the International Friendly match against Bolivia in item number 40 on the List.
“Another remittance of 310,000 USD was made same day through same account number to JER TRADE CONSULTING for same International friendly match against Bolivia.
“NANF investigation has unveiled JER TRADE CONSULTING as a SHELL company registered in PANAMA for the sole purpose of laundering stolen funds from third world countries. JER TRADE CONSULTING is a conduit pipe for Amaju Pinnick and his gang to siphon NFF funds.
It will be noted that Nigeria has never played against Bolivia at any level of the national teams set ups.
