The leadership crisis which has been rocking the Taraba State Football Association (FA), took a fresh twist, following the order of the Federal Court.

The Federal High Court in Jalingo, sacked the incumbent chairman, Timothy Heman with immediate effect.

The presiding judge, Justice Simone Amobeda ordered that the plaintiff, Sanusi Mahmoud be immediately sworn in as the chairman of the association in the State.
