The world’s football governing body, FIFA, has slapped former Sierra Leone Football Association official, Abu Bakarr Kabba  with a five year ban for violating Fifa’s Code of Ethics.

In addition,  Abu Bakarr Kabba  was fined US$50,000 for the violation.

FIFA  found him “guilty of having accepted and received bribes in relation to the manipulation of international matches” which are prohibited by FIFA’s code of ethics.

Abu Bakarr Kabba was part of Fifa’s investigation “into various international matches (attempted to be) manipulated for betting purposes by Mr Wilson Raj Perumal.”

Several African referees and other officials linked to football on the continent have been punished for their links to convicted match-fixer Perumal and other violations.

FIFA  recently also handed The former Liberia Football Association (LFA), Musa Bility a ten year ban after he was found culpable by Fifa for dishonestly using resources and accepting undue benefits.
