Dalung, Pinnick intervenes as Security Operatives attempts to shoot, arrest LMC Boss Shehu Dikko

League Management Company boss Shehu Dikko escaped being shot at and arrested by some security operatives after the team arrived by 11:32 pm at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport in
Abuja from  their victory over Zambia in the World Cup qualifier match played on Sunday.

Shehu Dikko arrived in company of the sports minister Solomon Dalung and NFF President Amaju Pinnick when four men wearing plain clothes armed with handcuffs swooped on Dikko almost immediately. At a point in the drama one of the operatives shot into the air when the arguments heated up, before Dalung and Pinnick intervened.

According to an Eye Witness; 
Two men in mufti claiming to be police officers were waiting at the Abuja Airport as the Super Eagles delegation arrived from Zambia.The men, claiming they were from Jos Police Command, attempted to arrest Shehu Dikko but were foiled by NFF officials, club owners and media present.

The men claimed that the Abuja Police Commissioner wanted to see Dikko. At nearly midnight?! They presented neither IDs nor warrants.
Dikko told them he would take their numbers and would see the CP in the morning. Super Eagles players were hurriedly ushered into their bus and driven off as the situation escalated.

One of the men pointed his side arm at Kelvin Omuojine as he took his picture and discharged the firearm in the air as other journalists gathered. His colleague also joined in with a drawn firearm as he threatened to shoot all of us journalists.

The LMC has been locked in a legal battle over the expulsion of Giwa FC from the just concluded Nigeria Professional Football league 2015/2016 season.
It has appealed a conviction of Shehu Dikko and Salihu Abubakar for contempt of court.
