A Lagos State High court sitting in Igbosere, has issued another bench warrant for the arrest of a former Super Eagles Captain, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha over alleged tax evasion.
Justice Adedayo Akintoye gave the order on Monday following Okocha’s alleged failure to settle a 2017 income tax evasion case brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
This is the second time the judge will be issuing an arrest warrant on Okocha. The first warrant he issued was 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.
