Alleged car theift: Court grants Iyanya N20m bail

An Igbosere High Court in Lagos today granted bail in the sum of N20 million to a musician, Iyanya Mbuk, popularly known as Iyanya, over alleged car theft.

Iyanya, is facing a count charge of stealing.

The charge was preferred by the Special Fraud Unit (SFU) of the Nigeria Police.

Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile, while granting Iyanya bail, 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 is, therefore, granted to the defendant in the sum of N20 million with one surety in like sum”.

She ordered that the surety should have a landed property in Lagos and possess its certificate of occupancy.
