Policemen in Lagos state have arrested and arraigned a former Super Eagles player for allegedly assaulting his wife.

Former Super Eagles player, Godwin Okpara, was arraigned on Thursday before the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Ikeja for alleged wife battery, Punch has reported.
It was gathered that the 43-year old ex-football star allegedly battered his wife of 25 years, Linda during an altercation. He was arraigned on one count of wife battery contrary to Section 173 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.

Odo maintained that his client was innocent, vowing that “We shall prove our case during trial.”
