Nigerian singer Iyanya has finally reacted to the news of an alleged car theft charge against him.
The singer was earlier in the week arraigned before the Igbosere High court in Lagos before Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile.
He was said to have dragged before the court by the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU) in Ikoyi for stealing a car.
Reacting to the news, the ‘Kukure’ hitmaker took to Twitter to jab social media users and netizens for always wanting to hear bad news.
‘Una like bad news sha’ he wrote.
The Prosecutor, Mr. Chukwu Agwu, a Superintendent of Police (SP), had informed the court that Iyanya, sometimes in September 2018, dishonestly converted to his use or of another person, a Black Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Jeep, marked MAVINIY, with chassis number JTEBX7FJ7EK165480 and engine number 2TR1385954, belonging to The Temple Management Company Limited.
The offence, he said, is contrary to Sections 278(1) (b), 279(1)(2) and punishable under Section 285(10) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Following his plea of not guilty, Agwu urged the court to remand the defendant in custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCS), pending the hearing and determination of his bail application.
In his response, Iyanya’s Counsel, Mr. A. Williams, prayed the court not to remand his client in the custody of the NCS, pleaded that the musician be released to him and undertake to produce him in court at the next adjourned day.
After listened to their submissions, Justice Okikiolu-Ighile released the musician to his Counsel and adjourned the matter until February 27 and March 17, this year for ruling on his bail application and trial, respectively.
