Justice Adedayo Akintoye of a Lagos High court sitting in Igbosere, has again issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a former Super Eagles Captain, Augustine Okocha, popularly known as Jay- Jay Okocha over alleged tax evasion.
Justice Akintoye made the order following Okocha’s alleged failure to settle a 2017 income tax evasion case brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
The judge had on January 29 first issued the bench warrant, 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.
