(Go Down)
Justice Adedayo Akintoye of the Lagos State High Court in Igbosere on Monday reaffirmed her order for the arrest of ex-Super Eagles’ captain , Austin Okocha .
The judge made the arrest order in favour of the Lagos State Government , which accused the retired football star of failure to pay income tax.


On Monday, the prosecuting counsel for the state , Yusuf Sule, told the judge that Okocha had approached the government and was trying to settle but had yet to make payment .
In view of Okocha ’ s absence in court , Sule urged the judge to further adjourn the matter.
While granting the prayer for adjournment , the judge said the warrant , which she first issued on January 29 , 2018 for Okocha ’s arrest , subsisted .

“ Bench warrant is to continue against the defendant . Case adjourned till May 28 , 2019 for further directions ,” Justice Akintoye held .


In the three counts filed against Okocha before the court , the Lagos State Government accused him 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 P 8 Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 2004 (As Amended ). ”

The state alleged that Okocha failed to pay income tax contrary to Section 56 (a ) and (b ) of the Lagos State Revenue Administration Law No . 8 of 2006 .

He was further accused 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 P 8 Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 2004 (As Amended ). ”


The prosecution said since it filed the charges against him late 2017 Okocha had not appeared in court and was not represented by any lawyer.
