He was arraigned but pleaded not guilty to the charge was in the count for involuntary manslaughter.

The state counsel Adeshola Bello had informed the court that the defendant was for arraignment, adding that there was a mix-up in the date the alleged offence was committed.

The alleged offence, she said, contravened Section 222 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.

“We have on record Oct.10, 2022, but the actual date if the incident was October 12. We pray for the indulgence of the court to make amendment on the date,” she said.

The defense counsel Victor Ogunde (SAN) sought to bail for the defendant following his arraignment.

Ogunde added that the suit against the defendant was with a different number.

Justice Modupe Nicole-Clay questioned the defence for bringing a bail application despite the defendant being on bail since March 1.

Nicole-Clay thereafter adjourned until March 30 for the commencement of trial.

Abimbola was said to have died as a result of the fire incident that occurred at the couple’s home on October 12, 2022.
