"We wish to inform the general public that, though not yet contacted by FIFA in regards to this affair, our administration has already instructed its ethics committee to further investigate these accusations," FECAFOOT's interim president, Joseph Owona, said in a statement.

"We are strongly committed to employ all means necessary to resolve this disruptive matter with the shortest delay."
