Osunsanmi, however, following the defendant’s claim of being in court because of an ”amorous relationship gone sour with the complainant”, admitted the comedian to bail in the sum of N300,000 with two sureties in like sum.
The magistrate ordered that one of the sureties must own landed property in Lagos and both must be gainfully employed and must show evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
She directed the police to forward the case file to the office of the State Director of Public Prosecutions for advice and subsequently adjourned the case until Aug. 25 for mention.
