The Beninoise banned from any football activity for five years and sent home from the African Nations Championship in Algeria.
A randy Beninoise serving as a Media Officer in ongoing African Nations Championship in Algeria has been sent packing by the Confederation of African Football and banned from any football activity for five years.
Felix Sohounde Peperipe, a broadcaster from Benin, who was co-opted by the CAF to work on media organisation at the tournament was sent him home from the African Nations Championship in Algeria after he was accused of “indecent conduct”.
Sohounde Peperipe was suspended after a hearing of the CAF Disciplinary Committee in Algiers this week.
The Committee had heard from the victim that he “attacked” her last weekend, “rough handled and frisked” her after she went to his hotel room to collect accreditation documents.
The Disciplinary Committee decision, released to reporters, also said a second person had also come forward to provide details of an inappropriate offer received from Sohounde Peperipe when he served as a media officer at the last Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.
Sohounde Peperipe denied any wrong doing, and said they were a plot to sully his reputation. It was not immediately clear if he would face any criminal charges.
