An Igbosere High Court, sitting in Lagos State, has issued another bench warrant for the arrest of Augustine Ja-Jay Okocha, a former Super Eagles captain. He’s being accused of tax evasion.
Justice Adedayo Akintoye delivered the judgement on Monday. Okocha was said to have failed to settle a 2017 income tax evasion case brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
The judge first made the order on January 29, following an application by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice.
The ministry told the court that Okocha had also failed to appear in court since 2017 when the case was filed against him.
