John Fashanu has been questioned by police after they found an unlicensed weapon in his house during a police raid.
According to Uk Mirror, twenty officers stormed the soccer star’s 20-room mansion in Abuja, Nigeria, with a search warrant on Saturday.
They seized the gun, believed to be capable of firing up to 30 rounds, as well as “five passports” before taking him to the city’s central station to be questioned.
It is understood he made a statement before being released from custody after nearly six hours.
He is now due to return there by Monday.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mirror, 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 preparing to fight a bitter divorce case against his estranged wife Abigail at Nigeria’s High Court, claimed she called in cops in revenge for him ending their marriage.
