Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) has fired vice-president Malick Tohe, who is under investigation for misconduct.

In a statement, the federation’s executive committee said it fired the vice-president from his position in accordance with article 47 of the FIF bylaws.

Malick is accused of failing to appear before Exco twice where he had been given chance to be heard having been accused of commiting undisclosed offences.

“The decision to remove Mr. TOHE Malick, vice-president and member of the Executive Committee, from office was taken unanimity of the members present,”reads part of the statement as translated from French.

“The person concerned has been formally informed twice about his right to be heard on the charges against him. He did not deign to introduce himself to be heard. That defect is to be considered as an admission of guilt on his part.

“Under the aforementioned statutory provisions, the revocation is effective immediately.”

Malick has been in sour relationship with FIF president Augustine Diallo.He had late last year resigned from the executive committee citing corruption in League One sponsorship deal.
