By on September 8th, 2022

The court consequently adjourned till October 24, 2022, for the continuation of the hearing.

Nigerian singer, Panshak Zamani, popularly known as Ice Prince may remain in prison custody till October 24, 2022.

His trial on alleged assault was stalled on Wednesday, at a Magistrate Court in Ajah, Lagos following the absence of the prosecution witnesses.

The Nigeria Police Force arraigned the ‘Oleku’ crooner before the Magistrate Court on three counts bordering on assault, obstructing a policeman from carrying out its statutory duties, and abduction.

When the trial resumed on Wednesday, the prosecution’s lawyer asked the court to adjourn the case, citing the absence of his two witnesses.

The court consequently adjourned till October 24, 2022, for the continuation of the hearing.

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

The court also ordered that he should remain at the Ikoyi correctional facility pending when he is able to perfect the bail conditions.

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

It was learnt that until the court evaluates the sureties brought by the rapper, he may likely remain in the prison facility till the next adjourned date.

“If they (the sureties) meet the requirement, we may even release him today, but if not, he is not going anywhere,” Nigeria Lawyer quoted a warder as saying.

SaharaReporters earlier reported that the Lagos State Police Command’s spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a Twitter post broke the news of the singer’s arrest.

He said Ice Prince was arrested for an alleged assault on a police officer who stopped him for driving without number plates.

Hundeyin said the musician threatened to throw the officer into a river at the point of arrest.

The police officer posted a photo of the rapper in handcuffs and said he would be prosecuted.

Ice Prince rose to fame after releasing “Oleku”, one of Nigeria’s most remixed songs.
