The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has disclosed they have responded to a notice by former Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi threatening to sue the federation for alleged defamation.
NFF president Amaju Pinnick says the federation are unruffled by Keshi’s intention to drag them to court.
Keshi is claiming damages of N1bn over his manner of dismissal from the Eagles job, which his lawyers have termed “wrongful and defamatory.”
“We have received the letter from Keshi’s representatives and we have gone through it,” Pinnick is quoted as saying by AfricanFootball.com.
“There is nothing to worry about. We have directed our legal department to study it and as I speak to you we have responded to the persons who sent the letter, so Nigerians have nothing to worry about.”
