Nigerian Rapper, Ice Prince, has been released from the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Ikoyi, Lagos, following the perfection of his bail conditions.The ‘Oleku’ crooner is standing trial before a Magistrate Court, Ajah on a three-count charge bordering on alleged assault, obstructing a policeman from carrying out its statutory duties, and abduction.
Ice Prince, whose real name is Panshak Zamani, was arrested on September 2 by officers of the Lagos Police command.
The command’s spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, had said at the time that the musician assaulted and threatened to throw the undisclosed officer into the river.
He was arraigned last Friday, and the court had earlier granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 and asked him to provide two sureties.
The court also ordered his remand at the Ikoyi correctional facility until he meets the bail conditions.
When his trial resumed on Wednesday, the prosecution counsel asked the court to adjourn the case, citing the absence of his two witnesses.
During the hearing, Folarin Dalmeida, who’s the counsel to the musician, presented the two sureties requested by the court, as part of the bail conditions.
Ice Prince was later moved back to the Correctional Centre in Ikoyi, pending the verification of his two sureties.
The defence counsel later told TVC News that Ice Prince was later released on Thursday, at about 3pm.
Hearing on the trial continues on October 24.
