Former Golden Eaglets star and FC Copenhagen of Denmark forward Akinkunmi Amoo has been sentenced to one-year in prison for sexual assault.
In a Tweet by former BBC World Football reporter, Osasu Obayiuwana, Amoo was sentenced by a Danish court on Friday, June 23, 2023.
However, he stated that Amoo will appeal the court decision.
Also, Obayiuwana posted a statement by a Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet who disclosed the outcome of Friday’s trial.
“This is the outcome of the trial, which has been going on for most of June, where a top player in Danish football has been charged with rape in a sexual relationship other than intercourse, as well as attempted rape and violations of two more women.
“It happens after he was found guilty of all three charges in the Copenhagen District Court by a dissenting magistrate on Friday afternoon, and it was a shaken man who received his sentence as he stood there in the middle of the room and listened to the outcome.
“An unconditional prison sentence for one year.
“In the same case, the name ban in the case was extended because the defense and the convicted appealed the verdict on the spot. Ekstra Bladet protested against the continued name ban, but the court did not accept it.
“It is not known when the appeal will go to court.”
Danish authorities had first brought forward criminal charges against Amoo in April 2022, and then again in July and August 2022.
The 21-year-old was then arrested on September 10, 2022, before being released on bail on October 7.
Amoo was part of the Golden Eaglets squad that finished fourth at the 2019 U-17 AFCON.
Also, he featured at the U-17 World Cup where the Eaglets got knocked out in the round of 16.
