Super Eagles legend, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has been arraigned in private at an Aberdeen Sheriff Court, according to a Scottish daily Evening Express.
The former Nigerian international was arraigned on Friday, May 31, by the Scottish police after a two-year probe in a court in Aberdeen over alleged money laundering charges.
Okocha was charged for an alleged acquisition, use and possession of the criminal property, and another count-charge of allegedly concealing, disguising, converting and transferring criminal property.
Okocha’s appearance on Friday reports suggest is in connection to incidents alleged to have happened in the North-East in 2015 and the Police have been on the trail of the former Nigeria captain and six others since then.
Okocha did not make any plea during the hearing and was granted bail.
The court directed that the case should face further investigation before adjourning the case without fixing a date.
