A Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere has renewed a bench warrant for the arrest of former Super Eagles captain, Augustine Jay-Jay Okocha for alleged tax evasion.
Justice Adedayo Akintoye made the order following Okocha’s alleged failure to resolve a 2017 income tax evasion case brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
The judge first gave the order on January 29, following an application by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice.
The ministry filed a three-count charge against the former PSG midfielder in June 6, 2017, which accused Okocha of “Failure to furnish return of income for tax purposes with the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service contrary to Section 94 (1) of the Personal Income Tax Act Cap P8 Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 2004 (As Amended).
The ministry told the court that Okocha had also failed to appear in court since 2017 when the case was filed against him.
