Davido’s crew member may spend weekend in prison

It was reported that a crew member of Davido and some Airport officials engaged in a fight at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos.

According to reports, trouble started when a checkpoint staff attempted to verify some of the luggage. But, rather than allow the staff to carry out his official duty, 22-year-old Umarudeen Kayode insisted that he would not allow him to verify the luggage.

Umarudeen was arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate court on a 5-count charge yesterday, January 12. He was charged for assault, breach of public peace and for resisting arrest. The first charge accused him of obstructing and resisting a public officer, an offence contrary to section 117(1) and punishable under the same section of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.

“That you, Umarudeen Kayode ‘M’, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district did unlawfully assault a public officer causing him harm and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 171 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011” reads count 2.

The magistrate granted him bail in the sum of N50, 000 and two sureties in like sum. The sureties must have variable addresses within the jurisdiction of the court.

According to Sahara Reporters, Umarudeen was not able to meet the bail condition as at the time the court closed for the day. This means Umarudeen will spend the weekend in the until he perfects his bail conditions.
