KanyiDaily had reported how Bimbo died in a hospital after getting into a scuffle with her husband and allegedly setting herself ablaze at their mansion in Lagos.

The Lagos state government charged IVD before  Justice Nicole-Clay on one count of involuntary manslaughter in suit No LD/21055C/23.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Monday, March 20, 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.

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

Bello 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, and 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.

This comes a few weeks after IVD Autos declared that nobody can bring him down because he’s a good man, noting that he can defend himself any day and anywhere.
