Nigerian musician Iyanya accused of alleged car theft has been granted a N20 million bail by a High Court in Lagos.

Iyanya is facing a count charge of stealing.

“I have perused the affidavit and the counter-affidavit of the parties; there is a prima facie case of criminal conversion against him,” Judge Justice Mobolanle Okikiolu-Ighile said.

“However, there is nothing to show that the defendant will interfere with the proceedings of this case and nothing to show that he will jump bail if granted.

“Bail is, therefore, granted to the defendant in the sum of N20 million with one surety in like sum.”

The judge also adjourned the case until May 27 for trial.
