Alleged car theft: #Iyanya ordered to meet N20m bail condition within 7days


Singer Iyanya was today granted N20million bail by an Igbosere High Court in Lagos, over alleged car theft.
.
.
Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile warned him to perfect the conditions within seven days, “otherwise the bail shall be revoked”.
.
.
The musician, Justice Okikiolu-Ighile said, had a case to answer. The judge said: “I have perused the affidavit and the counter-affidavit of the parties; there is a prima facie case of criminal conversion against him.
.
.
However, there is nothing to show that the defendant will interfere with the proceedings of this case and nothing to show that he will jump bail if granted bail.
.
.
Bail is therefore granted to the defendant in the sum of N20 million with one surety in the like sum”. The judge adjourned till May 27 and 28 for trial.
.
.
The police filed the one-count charge marked LD/9024c/2019, against the singer on March 15, 2019. Prosecution counsel, Mr. Chukwu Agwu, a Superintendent of Police (SP), alleged that Iyanya committed the offence sometime in September 2018.
.
.
The court heard that the defendant dishonestly converted to his use or of another person, a Black Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) marked MAVINIY, with Chassis and Engine numbers JTEBX7FJ7EK165480 and 2TR1385954.
.
.
Agwu told the court that said vehicle belongs to the singer’s former management company, ‘The Temple Management Company Ltd.
