The case was stalled on Wednesday following the absence of the prosecution witnesses.

 

Mr Dalmeida, however, did not make any comment or reference to the absence of the prosecution witnesses at the last hearing.

The Lagos State Police Command’s spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, is yet to respond to this newspaper’s request for update on the case.

 

The rapper was arrested on September 2, and is currently facing a three-count charge of alleged assault, obstructing police duties and abduction.

The Lagos State Police Command’s spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, had, in a Twitter post, broken the news of the singer’s arrest.

In the tweet, Mr Hudenyin alleged that the rapper 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.

The musician was arraigned at the Ajah magistrate court same day.

 

On resumption of his trial on September 7, the prosecution counsel asked the court for an adjournment due to the absence of his witnesses.
