Alleged Abduction Of Police Officer: ‘Ice Prince’ May Spend 3 Years In Jail 

Magistrate T. F. Oyeniyi of Ajah Magistrates’ Court, Lagos State, has directed that music artiste, Panshak Zamani, popularly known as Ice Prince, be remanded in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCoS), Ikoyi, Lagos, pending when he is able to perfect the bail conditions granted him by the court.

The musician was asked to be remanded in prison as a result of his alleged involvement in the assault, obstruction, and abduction of a police officer.

Magistrate Oyeniyi’s directive comes after Ice Prince pleaded not guilty to the charges initiated against him by the police.

The court adjourned further hearings on the matter until September 7, 2022.

The Lagos State Police Command had arraigned Ice Prince for allegedly assaulting and abducting a police officer on duty.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Benjamin Hundeyin, the Command’s Spokesman, who confirmed the musician’s arrest via his Twitter handle, revealed that Ice Prince was arrested at Lekki for allegedly driving his car without a number plate.

The musician was also alleged to have abducted the police officer in his car, assaulted him, and threatened to throw him into the lagoon.

It would be recalled that Ice Prince was docked before Magistrate Oyeniyi on charges of alleged assault, obstruction, and abduction, to which he pleaded not guilty.

As a result of his plea posture, the court granted him bail in the sum of N500, 000, with two responsible sureties in like sum.

The Magistrate further directed that he be remanded at the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Ikoyi until the perfection of the bail terms.

If found guilty according to Section 356 of the Criminal Code of Nigeria, Ice Prince risks a 3-year jail term.
