The current CAF boss Ahmad Ahmad is having a very difficult last few days.
According to @jeune_afrique, the CAF president was arrested on Thursday morning at a hotel in Paris, where he was staying to attend the FIFA Congress. President Ahmad arrested around 8:30 am at the Berri Hotel in Paris, according to several media reports.
It’s unclear why the Magdagalsy was taken away by police.
Though some section of the media say the arrest is based on issues relating to contractual matters with a Puma deal that was unilaterally abrogated in favour of another company.
The last few days have been very controversial for the African football body(CAF) he is in charge of.
Less than 24 hours ago CAF’s executive committee decided to order for a replay of the 2nd leg of the CAF Champions league final which ended prematurely last Friday in Tunis.
The decision to replay the CAF Champions League final has not gone down well with Esperance followers and many across the continent including some top followers of Mr Ahmad.
Earlier this year there were issues of corruption and sexual harassment raised against the Football don especially by former CAF SG Amr Fahmi.
The next edition of the biggest football jamboree in the continent starts in 15 days in Egypt and will need the football supremo of thr continent for a smooth football festival.
