There appears to be no end in sight to the crisis plaguing the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN.
A document sighted by Roving Naija revealed that the Nigerian Police has charged the embattled President of the AFN and the Athletes Rep. Sunday Adeleye for criminal breach of trust and cheating in the diversion of over $75,000 US from Puma meant for the Federation.
The money was diverted said to have been diverted into the private company owned by Sunday Adeleye, DSS Ltd.
The charge sheet reads: “ Criminal Conspiracy, Misappropriation, criminal breach of trust and cheating contrary to section 97, 312, 370 and 308 PC that on the 24th February 2020 via a petition to the Inspector General of Police by one Prince Adeniyi A.
