Former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha yesterday said he was never contacted over his alleged failure to pay income tax before a Lagos court issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

It will be recalled that an order had been issued by a Lagos High Court in Igbosere for Okocha’s arrest earlier in the week on a three-count charge bordering on failure to furnish return of income.

Okocha, who spoke for the first time yesterday told  newsmen in a telephone chat that he was never contacted by anybody regarding income taxes adding that he only read about it on the pages of newspapers.

The former Bolton of England midfielder, and member of Super Eagles squad to Tunisia ’94 and Atlanta ’96 Olympics, however hinted that the issue had been settled though he declined to give details.
