Popular Singer Iyanya Arraigned in Court For Allegedly Stealing A Car


The saying that a dynasty well built can be brought down in minutes if care isn’t taken is almost befalling the Nigerian Singer popularly known as Iyanya.

Here is the shocker

Iyanya has been arraigned in Igbosere high court in Lagos over an allegation that the singer stole a car.

Reports has it that, the Musician was charged for the theft case filed against him, arraigned before Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 where he was brought for hearing by the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU) Ikoyi for stealing a car.

The case which is a one-count charge marked LD/9024c/2019, against the singer on March 15, 2019 had been adjourned six times due to Iyanya’s failure to show up in court, despite being served the charge and hearing notice.

Following the menace of Justice Ighile to use the power residual in the court of Law against Iyanya for not showing up at the court, On Tuesday, February 4, 2020, Iyanya showed up at court where the charge was read before him.

The hearing revealed the alleged dishonesty of the singer converting a Black Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) marked MAVINIY, with Chassis and Engine numbers JTEBX7FJ7EK165480 and 2TR1385954 which was not his own for personal use.

The defendant, Iyanya, after the charge was read, pleaded not guilty of the charge against him. However, the prosecuting counsel prayed that the court remand the singer in prison custody.
Combating the request of the prosecuting counsel, Iyanya’s lawyer, Mr. William A. prayed for the release of the singer, pledging to undertake bringing Iyanya to court on the next adjournment.

Before giving a bang, Justice Okikiolu-Ighile ruled that Iyanya be released to his counsel, Mr. William A.

To rule on Iyanya’s bail and commencement for trial, the justice Okikiolu-Ighile adjourned the case to February 27 and March 17 respectively.

Meanwhile, the SUV car allegedly stolen was said to belong to ‘The Temple Management Company Ltd.

Hmmmm, big shocker right?

Should we have to give our thoughts about this already?

What would this cost Iyanya and his dynasty in the Music Industry?

Well, there more revelation on this case.

Our ears are close to the ground, expect more.

Wait for it!
