Former Golden Eaglets star, Akinkunmi Amoo, will appear at the District Court in Denmark on June 23 on alleged charges bothering on sexual assault and other two unspecified others, journalist Osasu Obayiuwana posted on Twitter.
Amoo is reportedly in Nigeria after being granted permission by his club FC Copenhagen to visit his family and at the same time train with the Nigeria Football Federation’s medical staff.
The 20-year-old has been training with the Flying Eagles in Abuja as he continues his rehabilitation from a long-term knee injury.
In the latest development, Amoo, who was the Eaglets’ standout player at the 2019 U-17 World Cup, is set to appear in court in Denmark.
“I understand that @FCKobenhavn striker Akinkunmi Amoo is due to appear in a district court in Copenhagen, Denmark on June 23rd, to respond to charges of alleged sexual assault and two other unspecified counts,” Obayiuwana Osasu wrote on his Twitter page.
“Amoo is currently in Nigeria. Amoo was initially arrested on September 10th 2022 and was released on bail on October 7th of the same year.
“The criminal charges against Amoo were laid by Danish authorities in April, July and August 2022,” he twitted.
Amoo was an unused substitute in the Super Eagles’ second leg of their World Cup playoffs against Ghana in March 2022.
