Jay Jay Okocha Escapes JAIL TERM As He Settles His Tax Problems With Lagos State Government
Former Nigerian Footballer, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has saw his tax problems with Lagos State Government resolved after reconciling with Lagos Internal Revenue Service.
A Lagos State Prosecutor, Mrs Y. A. Pitan, told an Igbosere High Court on Wednesday in Lagos that the Lagos Internal Revenue Service informed it that Okocha visited its office and reconciled his accounts.
Pitan then prayed the court for an adjournment to enable her file a notice of discontinuance of the charge preferred against him.
Justice Adedayo Akintoye, consequently, withdrew the warrant of arrest earlier issued on the defendant.
She adjourned further hearing until Nov. 14, to enable prosecution file notice of discontinuance of the charge.
