John Fashanu interrogated by police after they discover illegal gun at his house in Abuja

John Fashanu has been questioned by the police after they found an unlicensed weapon in his house during a police raid. About 20 officers stormed 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 passports before taking him to the a police station to be questioned.

After almost 6 hours of interrogation, he made a statement before being 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 preparing to fight a bitter divorce case against his estranged wife Abigail at Nigeria’s High Court, claimed she called the police in revenge for him ending their marriage.

He is now due to return there by Monday.
