Court Orders Jay Jay Okocha’s Arrest For Tax Evasion.
A Lagos High Court in Igbosere renewed a bench warrant for the arrest of Augustine Jay-Jay Okocha, former Super Eagles captain for alleged tax evasion.
Justice Adedayo Akintoye made the order following the alleged failure of Okocha to settle the Lagos State Government’s 2017 income tax evasion case.
The judge first issued the order on January 29, following a request from the Ministry of Justice of Lagos State. The ministry told the court that since 2017 when the case was filed against him, Okocha had also failed to appear in court.
