Former Nigeria defender Godwin Okpara could be facing rape charges in a French court, after being arrested by the police at the weekend.

Okpara, who played for French sides Strasbourg and Paris St Germain, was taken from his home in the high-brow suburb of Le Vesinet - on the outskirts of the French capital Paris - after a 13-year-old girl alleged the player had molested her.

Okpara's wife and mother-in-law have also been arrested in relation to the charges.

An appeal for bail, pending the investigation of the charges, was rejected by a judge on Monday.

All three people will be detained until the conclusion of the criminal investigation by a judge, after which a decision will be made on whether they will be charged or released.

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
