Former Super Eagles star midfielder Austin Jay-Jay Okocha faces arrest for tax evasion.
Okocha’s arrest has been issued by the Lagos High Court in Igbosere, after he repeatedly failed to show up in court when charged for not paying his income taxes.
The 45-year-old former Nigeria international was not given preferential treatment by the judicial system for his achievements wearing the green and white of Nigeria across various local and international competitions.
A warrant for his arrest has been ordered by the high court which has taken effect immediately.
