Jay Jay Okocha

Ex-Super Eagles’ captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has resolved his tax evasion case  with the Lagos State Internal Revenue Boarding with indications rife that the suit may be struck out today when it comes up for hearing.

Reports have it that the former footballer has reached an amicable settlement of the case with the state authorities, which could possibly lead to the withdrawal of the case from a Lagos High Court.
The case, which is before Justice Adedayo Akintoye, will be heard today but a government source familiar with the suit revealed that the cause may be struck out since Okocha has reached an agreement with the prosecutor.
On January 29, 2019, a Lagos High Court had issued a bench warrant for Okocha’s arrest for failing to appear in court severally to defend himself on the allegation of tax evasion brought against him.
The prosecutor, Dr Jide Martins had on June 6, 2017, filed the charge and when the case came up for hearing on October 5, 2017, the defendant did not appear in court.
The prosecution had told the court that the defendant had failed to furnish the Lagos State Internal Revenue Board with a return of Income for tax purposes.
He said that the offences contravened Sections 56 (a) and (b) of the Lagos State Revenue Administration Law No.8, 2006 and Section 94 (I) of the Personal Income Tax Act Cap P8, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.
Okocha is the first high profile Nigerian footballer to be dragged to court for tax evasion.
