Lagos Court Remands IVD Over Wife’s Death



An Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday remanded a Lagos auto dealer, Ikechukwu Ogbonna, over the death of his wife, Abimbola Martins-Ogbonna.

While reading out the DPP advice, Magistrate Kafayat Tella stated that the defendant would be arraigned before the Lagos High Court, and should be remanded in custody pending his arraignment.

The defence lawyer, Mr Abubakar Yesufu, however, prayed the court to allow the defendant to be released based on earlier bail conditions granted him.

But Magistrate Tella held that she lacked jurisdiction to entertain a case of involuntary manslaughter, hence all bail applications should be presented before the High Court.

The matter was adjourned till March 7, 2023.

Ikechukwu, a 37-year-old Lagos car dealer, was arrested by the Lagos State Police Command over the death of his wife, Abimbola, in the Lekki area of the state.

The defendant and the deceased were married for 16 years with five children.

The marriage, however, was fraught with disagreement and alleged domestic violence.
