Soccer-FIFA suspends Nigeria Football Federation


RIO DE JANEIRO, July 9 (Reuters) - FIFA suspended the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday on account of government interference, world soccer's ruling body said in a statement.

FIFA sent a letter to the NFF last week expressing its concern after the NFF was served with court proceedings preventing its President from running the African country's soccer affairs. (Editing by Ed Osmond)
