Court orders arrest of Nigeria’s Jay Jay Okocha

Former Nigeria captain Austin Jay-Jay Okocha is facing time in jail after a court ordered his arrest over tax evasion allegations on Tuesday.

The arrest warrant was issued by Justice Adedayo Akintoye at the Lagos State High Court after the former Bolton Wanderers captain failed to appear in court.

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.
