FIFA suspends Nigeria Football Federation

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - FIFA suspended the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday on account of government interference, world football's ruling body said in a statement.

FIFA sent a letter to the NFF last week expressing its concern after the NFF was served with court proceedings preventing its President from running the African country's football affairs.
