Former Nigeria Super Eagles defender Efe Sodje and two of his siblings have been jailed for defrauding a charity set up for poor African children.
Ex-footballers Efe Sodje, 46, and Stephen Sodje, 43, along with ex-rugby player Bright Sodje, 52, were found guilty of siphoning money from their family charity, the Sodje Sports Foundation (SSF).
The brothers’ convictions which took place in 2017 can only now be reported at the conclusion of a separate money laundering case involving the former Nigeria and Reading defender Sam Sodje who was cleared.
Another Sodje brother, Akpo, is still wanted in connection with the fraud charges but is said to have fled the UK during the investigation and an arrest warrant has been issued for him.
