As reported by The Times, Etuhu who won 33 caps for Nigeria and was part of the Super Eagles team to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was charged with a drugs offence after cocaine was found during a search of his property.
The troubles of Etuhu is not limited just to the drug charge as the former Premier League ace is also accused of bribery in a match-fixing investigation.
The 36-year-old Nigerian, who denies the claim, has been charged after an 18-month investigation in Sweden.
Etuhu has been accused of offering a bribe to his former AIK Stockholm team-mate Kenny Stamatopoulos to fix a match against Gothenburg last year.
Swedish authorities became aware of the allegations and cancelled the game.
Swedish FA’s secretary general Hakan Sjostrand claimed a “very large amount of money” had been offered as well as a number of “veiled threats”.
On the contrary, Etuhu’s lawyer Johan Akermark denied the allegations to Fotbollskanalen.
He said: “He has not offered any bribe and he does not know anything about any bribe. He had a snack with the AIK goalkeeper, they knew each other and used to meet for lunch.
