Nigeria’s football top-shot, Amos Adamu is under investigation by FIFA’S ethics committee for alleged breach of FIFA’s code of ethics.

The football’s world governing body revealed the probe on Wednesday but gave no further details on the matter.

“I don’t know (about the investigation). I’m not even aware of it,” Adamu told BBC Sport.

The 62-year-old also said he had not been contacted by the Ethics Committee about the case.

Adamu was a member of FIFA’s executive committee for four years until 2010, when he was banned from all football activity for three years.

He was banned over claims he asked for money in exchange for World Cup votes. His suspension expired in October 2013. Adamu was a high-ranking government official for Nigerian sport for 20 years and was once considered to be a leading candidate to succeed long-serving Issa Hayatou as president of the Confederation of African Football.
