Amos Adamu, a former FIFA executive committee member, could face another ban from football-related activities after indictment in various ethics code violations, BBC reports.

It has now recommended a two-year ban and a fine for Adamu, a former FIFA executive committee member who was banned for three years in 2010.

However, a final decision on his punishment may take several months to be determined.

In a statement by FIFA, it was gathered that Adamu violated three articles - covering general rules of conduct, loyalty and conflict of interest - of its Code of Ethics.

The statement read: “In its final report, the investigatory chamber recommends a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activities and a fine of 20,000 Swiss francs (£15,700) for violations of arts 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA code of ethics,” read a statement from world football’s governing body.

“The adjudicatory chamber under its chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert has studied the report carefully and decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings against Mr Adamu.”

Adamu, 62, was a member of FIFA's executive committee for four years until 2010, when he was banned from all football activity for three years.

He was found guilty of asking for money in exchange for World Cup votes, an accusation he denied.

However, his suspension expired in October 2013.
