Sodje scandal: Sporting brothers jailed for Africa charity fraud

Three sporting brothers have been “shamed” for defrauding a charity set up for poor African children, it can now be reported.

Former footballers Efe Sodje, 46, and Stephen Sodje, 43, and ex-rugby player Bright Sodje, 52, were found guilty and jailed in 2017 for siphoning money from their family charity, the Sodje Sports Foundation (SSF).

The Sodjes are a family of 11 siblings born in Greenwich, southeast London, to parents of Nigerian descent.

They set up the charity in 2009 to help youngsters in the UK, Nigeria and other countries in Africa.
