Former Super Eagles captain Austin Okocha popularly called Jay Jay Okocha has expressed shocke following the court arrest warrant issued against him some time last week.
In an earlier report last week, iDONSABI.com reported that a Lagos high court had issued an arrest warrant against Jay-Jay Okocha over an alleged tax fraud.
The former Super Eagles star has now reacted to the move to have him arrested.
In a recent telephone chat, Jay Jay Okocha revealed that he had only read about the arrest warrant issued by the courts in the news.
He says he wasn’t contacted by anyone prior to making moves to have him arrested.
In his words:
I only read about it on the pages of a news paper.
No one contacted me. As a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I know very well that nobody is above the law.
But honestly, I was never contacted by anybody on issues before the court order.
However, he said he could not discuss the case further but revealed that the matter has now been settled with the authorities.
