Austin Okocha A Lagos High Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a former Super Eagles Captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, for failure to appear in court severally to answer questions on why he has allegedly failed to pay his income taxes.According to Channels Television, the prosecutor, Dr Jide Martins, had on June 6, 2017, filed the charge, adding that the case came up for the first time on Oct. 5, 2017, but the defendant did not appear in court.The prosecutor had told the court that the defendant had failed to furnish the Lagos State Internal Revenue Services, 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 (1) of the Personal Income Tax Act Cap P8, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.Justice Adedayo Akintoye, on Jan. 29 issued a bench warrant for the arrest of the football star and adjourned until Feb. 19.However, the prosecution failed to effect the arrest on that date, leading the court to order that the warrant should be executed on the next adjourned date.All attempts to reach Okocha for his reaction on the matter failed as calls to his mobile phones were not answered.Okocha is the first high-profile Nigerian footballer to be dragged before a Nigerian court on allegations of failing to pay income tax.Top footballers like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have faced similar situations in Spain. Ronaldo was handed a suspended jail term recently in addition to paying millions of Euroes to the Spanish authorities.If this case pulls through, most Nigerian ex-internationals who returned to the country after years of football careers in Europe may face similar actions in their state of residents in the country.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#start#tips Questions about the legal requirements surrounding the establishment, incorporation or funding of a startup may be among the most common and most challenging that entrepreneurs face. There’s the general distrust of lawyers, alongside the sense – true or not – that legal advice will be too costly.LawPivot tackles this problem by providing a place where companies, but especially startups, can ask legal questions and get crowdsourced answers from qualified lawyers. LawPivot aims to ease some of the obstacles – financial, but also logistical – that make finding a lawyer so difficult.The co-founders, Jay Mandal and Nitin Gupta, are both lawyers. Mandal was the lead of Apple’s mergers and acquisitions team, and Gupta was an IP attorney at a several national firms. They bring to the table, then, an understanding of the needs of entrepreneurs and lawyers, the latter of whom are finding their own profession changing and are needing new ways to develop their businesses.How It WorksUnlike other Q&A sites, the questions you pose to LawPivot are confidential. You tag your questions with relevant keywords, which helps the site’s recommendation engine identify the best lawyers for the job. It’s the addition of recommendations and algorithms to this sort of online inquiry that LawPivot’s Gupta describes as “the next direction of Q&A.”You can ask questions about a variety of legal topics that concern your startup: contracts, stock issues, employment, licensing, patents, trademarks, real estate, just to name a few. But when you tag your question and request a lawyer, you needn’t only do so based on subject matter expertise. You can indicate, for example, that you need someone who’s quick to respond.You can then choose to send your question to the lawyers you choose or the ones LawPivot recommends, and you’ll get an email when a lawyer responds to your question.Through the end of the month, LawPivot is free. And it’s restricted to questions that address California law (so, California companies and California lawyers.) The company, which just received a round of funding from Google Ventures, does plan to expand beyond California eventually (and if you’re a company outside of California who has a question about a California legal matter, you’re still welcome to sign up). Following its free trial period, LawPivot will charge companies on either a per question or per monthly basis. audrey watters 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts
Posters declaring Union Minister and BJP MP from Nawada in Bihar, Giriraj Singh, as “missing” sprung up on the walls in his constituency on Wednesday. The posters also announced a reward of ₹11,000 to those who would provide information about him.“Union Minister and MP from Nawada Giriraj Singh has been missing for last several years…the people of Rajauli are desperately searching him…whoever sees him or gets him are kindly requested to inform the people of Rajauli…those who will inform about him will be rewarded with ₹11,000,” said the poster donning a large-size picture of Mr. Singh, who is Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the Narendra Modi Cabinet. Hindutva standRajauli is a subdivision of Nawada district, the parliamentary constituency of Mr. Singh. Mr. Singh has been often hitting headlines for his hard Hindutva stand and statements. In 2016 too a “missing” poster was pasted for Mr. Singh in Barbigha town of his constituency for non-development of the area. Soon the Minister visited Barbigha and held a meeting with the locals. Mr. Singh, though, has been visiting his constituency every now and then while holding meetings with the locals, say many in his constituency.“The poster has been pasted by some anti-social elements belonging to Opposition parties to defame our MP… everyone knows that our MP visits different parts of his constituency every month,” said Ranjit Kumar, local BJP leader in Rajauli. The local BJP workers and leaders have removed the posters. “Only recently our MP had visited several villages in the Meskaur block of Rajauli…people must be aware of such rumour-mongers and mischief makers,” said district BJP president Sashi Bhushan Kumar ‘Bablu’. Locals said the MP had promised them renovation work on National Highway-31 but it had not been started yet despite several reminders to him.
Though the Lok Sabha election schedule is yet to be announced and party tickets yet to be allotted, some high-profile candidates have already launched their campaign in Manipur.Former Chief Minister Radhabinod Koijam is one of the heavyweights who is seeking a BJP ticket for the Inner Manipur Lok Sabha constituency. His election posters have come up in all the valley districts. However, these posters do not state which party he will represent in the polls.Another candidate, Oinam Nabakishore Singh, a former Chief Secretary, is also appealing to the voters of this constituency to elect him in front-page newspaper advertisements.CPI candidate The State executive council of the CPI on Monday approved the candidature of M. Nara Singh, a former Minister. L. Sotin Kumar, the State secretary of the CPI, said there is a need to safeguard the people of the State since the BJP leaders are keen on including the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, in the party’s poll manifesto.Former CM and now Congress Legislature Party leader Okram Ibobi Singh said: “The burning issues which will be major poll planks are the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and the shrinking territory of Manipur, among others.”
