The Lagos State Football Association, LSFA, has debunked the reports of court case that has disrupted football activities at its Surulere headquarters, Silvernews.com.ng reports.

A statement by the LSFA Chairman, Gafar Liameed however said that the association is aware of a lawsuit that was instituted against the 13 individual members of the LSFA State Congress, noting that they have advised the Congress members to seek justice through the appropriate channels.


The statement reads: “It has been brought to the attention of the Board Members of the Lagos State Football Association (LSFA) that there are reports going round about its being embroiled in a court case, thus leading to a disruption in footballing activities at the headquarters in Surulere.

“We would like to set the records straight by stating that the LSFA is not involved in any court case with any individual or organization by whatsoever name called.

“The LSFA is not and has not been made a party to any court dispute. Therefore footballing activities in and around the LSFA headquarters are ongoing and peaceful too.

“Be that as it may, the LSFA is aware that a lawsuit was instituted against the thirteen (13) individual members of the LSFA State Congress, whereby the exercise of their statutory powers, as conferred on them by the LSFA statutes, is being challenged in court.

“As a law abiding corporate citizen, the LSFA is mindful of the fact that the law must take its place and this is done by encouraging the Congress members to seek justice through the appropriate channels and in line with the procedures laid down and available in our judicial system.

“The Congress members have engaged professional legal representation and are confident in the ability of their legal representation to see that justice is dispensed in the most efficient manner.

“The LSFA however, is a going concern, still charged with the responsibility of effectively administering the business of footballing activities in the State.

“There is no disruption whatsoever to the administrative functions of the LSFA and we call on all football stakeholders in the State to carry on with their duties and interactions with the LSFA without fear or apprehension.”
