World football governing body FIFA have summoned Somalia Football Federation (SFF) boss Abdiqani Said to answer questions over missing funds meant for the Women football team.

Reports say Said was summoned to Zurich to explain where the millions of dollars which had been channeled to the Somalia Football Federation had gone. 

This follows an accusation by Shaima Mohamed, the head of women’s football, who had reached out to FIFA to take action, claiming money made available by FIFA to support the women’s game in the country was not reaching its intended target.

Every national Football Association is entitled to money from FIFA, with $100,000 of the $500,000 available for operational costs ring-fenced for women’s football, while additional money is available for travel to women’s tournaments and for special projects related to women’s football.

Mohamed said last month that her life is in danger after reporting the Somalia Football Federation to FIFA for embezzling funds, prompting her to flee Mogadishu.
