Seun Egbegbe Remains In Prison Custody As Bail Application Hearing Stalls

Filmmaker Olajide Oluwaseun Kareem, more popularly known as Seun

Egbegbe, will remain in prison custody, as his application for bail

was put on hold due to the failure of the police to file a counter

affidavit.

The prosecutor, Innocent Anyigor, informed the court that the police

were unable to file a counter affidavit to hear Mr. Egbegbe's plea

because the police officer who would swear to the affidavit was ill.

"We have been served an affidavit but we are unable to file a counter

affidavit because the police officer who is supposed to depose to the

counter affidavit is sick. Because of this development, we will leave

the matter in discretion of the court to decide on what to do," the

prosecutor informed the court.

In response, the presiding judge, Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, ordered

the police to present any officer who would depose to the counter

affidavit and subsequently adjourned the hearing of the bail

application to Friday, February 24, 2017.

The judge said, "Since the matter has been left in discretion of the

court, the court hereby gives the police till Thursday to file a

counter affidavit."

Mr. Egbegbe was arraigned alongside Oyekan Ayomide in a 39-count

charge for allegedly defrauding some Bureau De Change (BDC) operators

of N40.647 million, $29,800 and £4,815 at different areas in Lagos

State between 2016 and February 2, 2017. The offense contravenes the

provisions of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act

2006.
