Eto’o should be removed as Facafoot president, ACFAC say


FECAFOOT President Samuel Eto’o has been accused of Nationality fraud by the Association of Amateur Football Clubs in Cameroon ACFAC.

ACFAC in a release made public on Tuesday July 2, said from results of investigation carried out by some persons it mandated since the month of July 2022, the former Indomitable Lions’ Captain lost the Cameroonian Nationality after obtaining that of Spain in 2007. It goes against article 31 of the June 1968 law governing the Cameroonian Nationality, ACFAC said.

‘On December 17, 2021, Samuel Eto’o in presenting his candidature for the lost of president, used the Cameroonian nationality which he lost 14 years earlier’ the release read.

ACFAC also noted that Eto’o deceived the electoral commission by presenting a falsified nationality certificate.

The association also revealed that over 50 of its member clubs have filed complaints to the ethics committee of the Cameroon football federation demanding his destitution as president, his radiation from football activities and that
a 20-billion compensation be paid by Samuel Eto’o to Fecafoot.

ACFAC also requests the reimbursement of all advantages obtained since December 11, 2021 when he became president and that the post should be considered vacant.

This accusation comes at a moment when Cameroonians are anxiously waiting for the verdict of CAF’s disciplinary committee on match rigging allegations Fecafoot president is accused of.
