Court Reaffirms Order For Okocha’s Arrest


A Lagos High Court Judge, Justice Adedayo Akintoye has again issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a former Super Eagles Captain, Austine Jay- Jay Okocha over alleged tax evasion.

Justice Akintoye gave the order following Okocha’s alleged failure to settle a 2017 income tax evasion case brought against him by the State government.

The judge first gave the order on January 29, following an application by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, which told the court that since the case was filed against Okocha In 2017, he had failed to appear in court to defend himself.
