Apex football Organization, FIFA has banned Nigerian football Coach and former player, Samson Siasia for life for Match-Fixing.
FIFA on Friday banned Siasia for life after the body’s ethics panel found him guilty of taking bribes in connection with match-fixing. The adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s independent ethics committee revealed that an investigation into Siasia’s activities originated from a wider investigation involving Wilson Raj Perumal, who has confessed to international match-fixing.
The probe that began in February found Siasia “guilty of having accepted that he would receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics,”.
Siasia was fined 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,000, 46,000 euros) and banned from all football-related activity for life.
