Ikechukwu Ogbonna, an auto dealer better known by his alias IVD, was charged with the alleged manslaughter of his late wife Abimbola on Monday, March 20, in front of Justice Nicole-Clay of the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja. Abimbola passed away in a fire incident at their home in the Lekki neighborhood of the state in October 2022.

In suit No. LD/21055C/23, the Lagos State Government filed an involuntary manslaughter accusation against IVD.

Adeshola Bello, the prosecuting attorney, informed the court that there was a mix-up in the date the claimed offense was committed during the case’s resumed hearing on Monday, March 20.

“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. He 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. 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.
