Famous sporting brothers jailed for Africa charity fraud

A famous sporting family has been "shamed" for milking a charity set up for poor African children, it can now be reported.

Ex-footballers Efe Sodje, 46, and Stephen Sodje, 43, and ex-rugby player Bright Sodje, 52, were found guilty and jailed for siphoning off money from their family charity, the Sodje Sports Foundation (SSF).

The fraud trial had heard how the Sodjes set up their charity in 2009 to help provide sporting facilities to youngsters in Nigeria - but "not a penny" from a fundraiser for child cancer made it to the hospital.

The brothers' convictions in 2017 can only now be reported at the conclusion of a separate money laundering case involving Efe and ex-West Brom defender Sam Sodje...
