The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has recommended a two-year ban for ex-WAFU president, Amos Adamu, from all football-related activities.

The 62-year-old who was a member of FIFA’s executive committee for four years until 2010 was also fined of $19,400 for various violations of Code of Ethics.

According to FIFA’s investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, Adamu violated articles 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).

The former member of Confederation of African Football (CAF) Adamu would be invited to defend himself with regard to the final report of the investigatory chamber.

“The investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, were opened on 9 March 2015 and the final report was passed to the adjudicatory chamber on 2 December 2016.

“In the final report, the investigatory chamber recommends a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activities (administrative, sports and any other) and a fine of CHF 20,000 for violations of arts 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).

“The adjudicatory chamber under its chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert has studied the report carefully and decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings against Mr Adamu.

“In the course of the proceedings, the party will be invited to submit his position including any evidence with regard to the final report of the investigatory chamber (art. 70 par. 2 of the FCE), and may request a hearing (art. 74 par. 2 of the FCE).” the statement from the committee reveals.

Adamu was received a three-year ban and 10,000 Swiss franc (£6,341) fine from Fifa’s ethics committee in 2010 after being found guilty of breaching bribery rules.
