Fifa said the football official from Sierra Leone have accepted and received bribes in relation to the manipulation of international matches, in violation of the Fifa code of ethics.

The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has also fined Kabba 50,000 Swiss Francs (50,372 dollars).

“The formal ethics proceeding against Mr Kabba were initiated on July 11, 2018 and stem from an extensive investigation into various international matches (attempted to be) manipulated for betting purposes by Wilson Raj Perumal.” FIFA said in a statement.

“This large-scale investigation was conducted by FIFA through its competent departments and in cooperation with the relevant stakeholder and authorities.”

The ban on Kabba overs all football-related activities at national and international level and came into force on Friday. The investigation into convicted Singapore-based match fixer Perumal’s activities has already resulted in life-bans for players and formal officials.
