Ighalo waits on lawyer after being mentioned in bribery scandal

26 October 2016, 13:28

Lagos - Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo is waiting for advice from his lawyer after he found himself in the middle of a bribery scandal.

Ighala was named among 95 people for allegedly bribing their way to pass a driving test while he was in Granada, Spain, according to a Spanish website Marca.

But the player has insisted that he will make an official statement after studying the allegation and getting advice from his legal team, while also saying “there’s no truth about it”

"Please I don't want to make any comment on this till my lawyer tells me to do so" Ighalo told fcnaija.com from his base in England.

"No truth about it, I don't want to comment."

If found guilty, the Watford forward risks a two-year jail term.

News24 reported in April that Ighalo lost his father Paul, two days after he complained of weakness.
