News filtering through to is that Sierra Leone Football Association's president Isha Johansen is facing corruption charges and has been set aside from her position.

The move comes after an investigation by the country's Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and the ruling has been taken by the SLFA executive committee which also extends to the body's secretary general Christopher Kamara.

According to a statement released by the SLFA, the executive committee has assured that it is behind Johansen and Kamara.


"The Executive Committee wants to assure Johansen and Kamara that (it) is fully behind them," read an SLFA statement.

"(We are) very supportive in ensuring success at the conclusion of the matter so as to welcome them back to continue their contribution towards the development of football in Sierra Leone."

It is also reported that Johansen and Kamara are due to make their first appearance in Sierra Leone's High Court on Monday.

Although they have both previously denied any wrong doing, SLFA vice-president Brima Mazola Kamara has assumed the role of president with immediate effect while Abdul Rahman will act as secretary general.
