Ikechukwu Ogbonna, a 37- year -old auto dealer, who is also known as IVD, has been dragged to court.

IVD was on Monday arraigned before a Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja over the alleged manslaughter of his late wife Abimbola, who died in a fire incident at their residence in the Lekki area of the state.

The defendant was arraigned on one count of involuntary manslaughter in suit No LD/21055C/23 preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.

The prosecuting counsel, Adeshola Bello, told the court that there was a mix-up in the date the alleged offence was committed.

“We have on record October 10 but the date was October 12,” Bello said.

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

Bello said the alleged offence committed contravened Section 229 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

However, Ogbonna who was arraigned before Modupe Nicole-Clay pleaded not guilty to the charge against him.

The defence counsel, Mr 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.

Recall that the media went agog when the news of Abimbola’s passing on October 12, 2022, became public knowledge.
