Justice Adedayo Akintoye of a Lagos High court sitting in Igbosere, has again issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a former Super Eagles Captain, Augustine popularly known as Jay- Jay Okocha over alleged tax evasion.
Justice Akintoye made the order following Okocha’s alleged failure to settle a 2017 income tax evasion case brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
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.
Chelsea 0-1 Bournemouth: Cherries Shock Blues At Stamford Bridge
Chelsea were beaten again in the Premier League, going down 1-0 at home to Bournemouth.
The Blues rarely threatened in a lacklustre display and fell foul of VAR as the linesman’s flag was overruled and Dan Gosling netted an 85th minute winner for the Cherries.
Gosling struck an 84th-minute winner when he flicked the ball over Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the net despite standing with his back to goal, ending Bournemouth’s run of five successive league losses.
Kepa was made to pay for another bout of poor positioning, while Chelsea were punished for an incoherent and toothless display that will have left boss Frank Lampard far from impressed.
Lampard has demanded more “personality” from his Chelsea players in a bid to arrest their league slump, but despite a host of big names there was precious little star quality on view in west London.
Instead, in-form striker Tammy Abraham was too isolated too often, with team-mates unable to provide the service to capitalise on his sharpness in front of goal.
Liverpool 2-0 Watford: Salah Nets Brace As Sloppy Reds Beat Bottom-Placed Hornets
Mo Salah scored two classy goals to give Liverpool another victory, but they had to ride their luck against bottom-placed Watford in a strange match at Anfield
Salah’s curling effort in the 37th minute put the Reds in front, finishing off a flowing counter attack.
Sadio Mane had a goal ruled out for offside early in the second half, before Salah made sure of the points with a fine flicked finish in the final minutes of the match.
Watford, in their first game under new boss Nigel Pearson, looked much improved and created several good chances but were wasteful in front of goal.
