Top Nigerian singer Iyanya has been granted N20 million as bail for allegedly stealing a car in 2019.
The singer has been asked to pay the hefty sum of N20 million by a Lagos High Court after he was arraigned over the car theft allegation levelled against him.
According to reports from blogger Linda Ikeji, the bail term was granted by justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile of the Igbosere High Court sitting in Lagos on Thursday, February 27, 2020, who ordered Iyanya to produce a surety in like sum, who should also have landed property in Lagos with a Certificate of Occupancy.
The judge warned the Kukere singer that the bail shall be revoked if not perfected within seven days.
Her statement reads:
“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 case has been adjourned till May 27 and 28 for trial.
