Musa Hassan Bility, the former President of the Liberian Football Association (LFA), was on Wednesday handed a 10-year ban by FIFA over corruption, including misuse of funds meant for Ebola awareness campaign.
Investigation into the illicit activities of the executive committee member at the Confederation of African Football (CAF), began in 2018. FIFA in a statement on Wednesday, said Musa Hassan Bility was found  "guilty of having misappropriated FIFA funds as well as having received benefits and found himself in situations of conflict of interest, in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics."
The Ebola awareness campaign with top football stars started off in November 2014, near the peak of a pandemic that killed more than 11,000 people across Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. The Ex-Liberian football chief was also found guilty of diverting money sent to LFA by FIFA, to businesses controlled by him or his family.
Asides being handed a 10-year ban from all football administration roles, Bility will face a fine of 500,000 CHF (about $507,150). He had previously attempted to run as a candidate to replace FIFA's disgraced former president Sepp Blatter, but was knocked off by Gianni Infantino after failing to pass integrity tests.
