The prosecution counsel then urged the court to grant the prosecution permission to enable them to make an amendment, which the court granted.

He told the court that the alleged offence committed contravened Section 229 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

When the charges were read to him, IVD pleaded not guilty.  His lawyer, Victor Ogunde, SAN, sought bail for the defendant. While seeking bail for the defendant, the judge asked why he was bringing a bail application despite the fact that the defendant was on bail since March 1.

The defence counsel replied that the suit against his client was with a different charge number.

Consequently, Justice Nicole-Clay adjourned the case till March 30, May 24 and 25, 2023, for the commencement of trial.
