  • In an Igbosere Chiefs Magistrate’s Court, the police prosecuted six people for allegedly pirating Toyin Abraham’s film Malaika.
  • In front of Chief Magistrate E. Ogunkanmi, police attorneys from ForceCID Annex Alagbon-Ikoyi Lagos introduced defendants Kehinde Oseni, Adekunle Segun, Adebiyi Sodiq, Oseni S. Akano, Mrs. Agboola Motunrayo, and Mrs. Adebiyi Suliat.

Six people were charged by the police yesterday in an Igbosere Chiefs Magistrate’s Court for piracy of Toyin Abraham‘s film Malaika.

Police attorneys from the Force Criminal Investigation Department (ForceCID) Annex Alagbon-Ikoyi Lagos presented the defendants—Kehinde Oseni, Adekunle Segun, Adebiyi Sodiq, Oseni S. Akano, Mrs. Agboola Motunrayo, and Mrs. Adebiyi Suliat—to Chief Magistrate E. Ogunkanmi.

They faced accusations of conspiracy, intellectual property theft, and attempting to sway the course of justice.

Morufu Animashaun, the prosecutor, said the court that they had all organized and carried out the purported illegal activities in Apapa in January.

Animashaun persisted in telling him in order to prevent an arrest. Animashaun informed the court that the defendants had violated sections 411, 972, 415, and 87 of the Lagos State, 2015 Criminal Laws, and that they would be punished under the saw laws.

Each defendant pleaded not guilty to the accusations.

After entering a not guilty plea, Animashaun requested that the court remand them to the Correctional Center pending the outcome of the legal proceedings.

However, Ganiyu Oyarevuegbe, their attorney, requested their bail orally and in the most accommodating manner imaginable.
