Jonas Okétola (born August 27, 1983 in Nigeria) is a Nigeria-Beninese former footballer. He last played for Thanda Royal Zulu.


The South Africa Soccer Association assessed a two-year ban on Okétola in January 2009, as a result of a doping violation.[1] A random test after a league match turned up a positive result for amphetamines, a prohibited substance.[1]

International career[edit]

He was part of the Beninese 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished bottom of their group in the first round of competition, thus failing to qualify for the quarter-finals.
