Super Eagles World Cup star, Brothers, languish in UK prison since 2017 over alleged fraud

A report by the National Crime Agency has revealed that former Super Eagles World Cup star, Efetobore Sodje,46, and two of his brothers are currently languishing in a United Kingdom Jail for alleged fraud..

Efetobore Sodje, alongside his brothers Stephen Sodje, 43, and ex-rugby player, Bright Sodje, 52, were given prison sentences for fraud in 2017.

The trio was found to have siphoned off more than £60,000 given to the Sodje Sports Foundation (SSF).

They were reportedly jailed in September 2017. Efe Sodje for 18 months, Bright Sodje for 21 months, and Stephen Sodje for two years and six months at the Central Criminal Court in relation to the fraud.

On Monday, a judge at the same court lifted reporting restrictions preventing publication of the result of that trial, following the completion of a separate trial involving their other brother and former Reading and Nigeria footballer Sam Sodje, 39.

Efe, Bright and Stephen Sodje set up the organization in 2009 with the aim to relieve poverty, advance good health in people through the provision of facilities in playing amateur sports and the promotion of lifelong learning, leadership skills and health issues such as HIV/AIDS, drugs abuse, and nutrition in the Niger Delta.

The money they realized at black-tie dinners, auctions, charity football matches, and a clay pigeon shoot however, went into their accounts, the court was told.
