The Nigerian football administrator is under investigation by Fifa following a Sunday Times a cash for votes sting, but there appears to be no end to his troubles.
Adamu sent an sms message to friends during the week with the message: “Hello, this is Amos Adamu, the following account . . . has been hacked into. Someone has broken into my account.
“Anyone asking for money on my behalf is lying. Please do not send money to anyone. It is 419. Thank you.”
Adamu becomes the second high profile Nigerian sports personality to be impersonated.
Early this year, former Nigeria coach Shuaibu Amodu's cell phone number was cloned, and used to solicit money from unsuspecting friends.
