The prosecution’s attorney requested an adjournment of the trial on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, citing the absence of his two witnesses, according to Pulse Nigeria.
However, the two sureties were brought to the court by the rapper’s attorney Folarin Dalmenida.
He had previously been granted bail in the amount of N500,000 by the court, with the condition that he produce “two responsible sureties.”
For reportedly attacking a police officer, Ice Prince was detained.
In a statement made public, Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, said that the musician kidnapped and threatened to kill an officer after the latter was pulled over for driving without a license.
“At 3am today, @Iceprincezamani was stopped for driving without license plates. He agreed to be taken to the station. He, thereafter, abducted the police officer in his car, assaulted him and threatened to throw him in the river. He has been arrested and would be arraigned today,” he tweeted.
The musician was eventually charged and put in custody at the Ikoyi Prison until his bail requirements were satisfied.
