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