President of Oghenekaro Etebo’s Spanish club, Miguel Angel Ramirez has been arrested at the Gran Canaria airport on Wednesday morning.
The Las Palmas chief was said to be arrested and detained by the police for paying workers below the payment in relation to private security and surveillance.
A Spanish media report says the Gran Canarian businessman had been detained by national police as he was at the disposal of the police as soon as he landed in Madrid.
“He has been detained on charges of social security fraud by paying workers below the agreement in relation to private security and surveillance, thus avoiding payment in ‘tens of millions’ of Euros”, the report said.
Ramirez is expected to appear before the Spanish judge on Thursday.
The club has already been relegated from the top flight in Spain at the weekend following their 4-0 loss at home to Alaves.
