Alleged assault: Why Singer Ice Prince will remain in prison

The trial of  Nigerian singer, Ice Prince, was stalled on Wednesday, September 7, at a magistrate court in Ajah, Lagos State, following the absence of the prosecution witnesses.

The ‘Oleku’ crooner is standing trial on a three-count charge bordering on assault, obstructing a policeman from carrying out its statutory duties, and abduction.

He was arrested in the early hours of Friday September 2, for allegedly abducting and assaulting a police officer in Lagos. 

During the trial, the prosecution’s lawyer asked the court to adjourn the case, citing the absence of his two witnesses.

In the previous hearing, the court granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 and asked him to provide “two responsible sureties”.

The court also ordered that he be remanded at the Ikoyi correctional facility until he perfects the bail conditions.

Folarin Dalmenida, the lawyer to the musician, presented the two sureties to the court.

Operatives of the Ikoyi correctional facility said that the artiste would remain in custody until he meets his bail conditions.

One of the officials, who preferred anonymity because he was not authorised to speak with the press, said the court would evaluate the sureties brought by the rapper and determine if he should be released or not.

“If they (the sureties) meet the requirement, we may even release him today, but if not, he is not going anywhere,” he said.
