IVD: Ebute Meta Court Remands Popular Car Dealer Over Wife’s Death
A Lagos court has mandated that auto dealer IVD be kept in custody in connection with the passing of his wife, Abimbola Martins-Ogbonna.
IVD has been charged with involuntary manslaughter by the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), and the Magistrate has mandated that the defendant be arraigned before the Lagos High Court.
Despite the defense attorney’s request for IVD to be released based on prior bail requirements, Magistrate Adebayo Kafayat Tella ruled that she lacked jurisdiction to hear the involuntary manslaughter case and that all bail requests should be brought before the high court.
She therefore set March 7, 2023 for the next hearing of the case.
After a fight with IVD on October 15, 2022, a fire broke out in the couple’s home in Megamound Estate, Lekki, and Bimbo died as a result of her injuries.
The 16-year-old marriage of the couple, who had five children together, was reportedly troubled by allegations of domestic abuse.
According to information gathered by this online newspaper, the deceased confronted IVD about the abuse they had been subjected to repeatedly, which led to a fight that ended with their home being set on fire. While Bimbo suffered severe burns, IVD only suffered minor burns.
IVD was detained by the State Criminal Investigation Department in Yaba after being transferred from the Lagos State Police Command.
Numerous people have expressed outrage over the situation and demanded justice for Bimbo.
