Chris Giwa prevented from taking part in Nigeria v Congo pre-match formalities 

NFF General Secretary Musa Amadu returned to the office on Monday after over two weeks out as Chris Giwa failed to report with a FIFA suspension looming.
Giwa had claimed to have been elected as NFF president, but had been given a deadline of 7AM Nigeria time on Monday by the world football governing body to desist from the claim, or have Nigeria suspended.
"He is not here, and there is no indication that he will show up," Amadu told on Monday morning. "Right now, I am in the office meeting with management staff to work a way forward so that the secretariat can function properly and our Programmes can continue leading up to elections this month.
"I hope it continues this way in the interest of peace in Nigerian football.
Amadu, who had spent the last two weeks in hiding, also stated that he would send a report to FIFA at the close of the business day
"The first report will go out to FIFA at close of work today, but there will be a caveat for further reporting in case there is a change of circumstances."
On Saturday, Giwa showed up at Nigeria's 2015 African Nations Cup qualifier against Congo in Calabar, but was turned back by security when he tried to take part in the pre-match formalities.
