CAF second Vice President Constant Omari is currently in police custody in the DR Congo after he was arrested over $1m football corruption allegation which included an alleged misappropriation of public funds for the national football team.
Omari was arrested on Tuesday along with two others over monies meant for a friendly match. The others being Roger Bondembe Bokanianga, Theobald Binamungu Rubambura, who serve as both President and Vice-Presidents of FECOFA respectively, and Barthélemy Okito Oleka, General Secretary for Sports and Leisure.
The action was led by judicial inspectors from the office of Luzolo Bambi, the Special Adviser to the Head of State in the fight against corruption, money laundering and terrorism.
A ban on leaving the country has already been imposed on Constant Omari, Sports Secretary Barthélémy Okito, the Public Accountant assigned to the Ministry of Sports and the Deputy Credit Manager assigned to the Ministry of Sports.
Supporters of Constant Omari who is also on the FIFA Council have insisted that the move is politically motivated by President Joseph Kabila who has moved to silent all those connected to opposition figures as he is a close friend to the exiled opposition figure Moise Katumbi.
