John Fashanu was arrested and questioned by the police after they found an unlicensed weapon in his house during a police raid. About 20 officers raided the football star’s 20-room mansion in Abuja, with a search warrant on Saturday May 30th. They seized the gun as well as 5 international passports before taking him to the a police station for interrogation.

After almost 6 hours of quizzing, he made a statement before he was released from custody.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mirror after the incident, Fashanu, 52, said:
“I was not arrested - I went to the police station voluntarily. I’ll go back tomorrow morning to the police station. I expect to pay a fine. It was an old fashioned firearm. I don’t actually know what model it is - it’s like a stub gun.”
Fashanu who is in the middle of a bitter divorce case with his estranged wife Abigail at Nigeria’s High Court, claimed she called the police in revenge for him ending their marriage.
