Henry Chukwuma Okoroji, a Nigerian match fixer
has been indicted in a match fixing scam after he
was caught on camera telling an undercover UK
Sun Newspaper reporter, Mahzher Mahmood, he
could arrange a yellow card during the World Cup
games for more than 41,000pounds and a
penalty for 81,000pounds.
Daily Mail reports that Okoroji spoke with the
reporter in company of his associate, Joe, in a
hotel room in Milan, Italy. He was
recorded saying he could facilitate different
outcomes on the football field, including a red
card, depending on the amount the reporter was
willing to pay. He was reported to have said that
he was working with two other Nigerian players
as well as a senior official of the Nigerian Football
Federation in the match-fixing scam, who he said
could help influence the Nigerian squad in the
world cup. Continue…
In a bid to prove his credibility, Okoroji was said
to have invited a Nigerian/Lazio footballer, Ogenyi
Onazi (pictured right) to the hotel but Onazi is not
thought to be involved in the plot.
Only last week, the National Crime Agency (NCA)
began investigations into claims that the friendly
match between Nigeria and Scotland was
fixed. Investigations into that allegation is still
going on according to an NCA official.
