The Ondo State Police Command has brought charges against two individuals, Adeniyi Atinuke and Ade-Ojo Isaac, before a Chief Magistrate Court in Akure in connection with the death of popular socialite Mr Oladoyinbo Adebayo, known as Say Bayo. The lifeless body of Say Bayo was discovered in his car on December 10, 2023, at Ijapo Estate, Akure, leading to the subsequent arrest and arraignment of the defendants on Friday.

The charges allege that the defendants committed a felony, specifically the “perversion of justice,” violating Section 126 of the Criminal Code Cap 37 Vol.1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006. Atinuke is accused of becoming an “accessory after the fact” concerning Say Bayo’s death, violating the Criminal Code Cap.37 Vol.1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria 2006.

During the court proceedings, both defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges. Inspector Wada Simeon, the police prosecutor, withdrew the earlier application to remand the defendants in the correctional center in Akure. Subsequently, the defense counsels, Mr A.O Afolabi and Mr Stephen Ademuagun, presented applications for bail on behalf of their clients. The magistrate, Chief Magistrate Damilola Sekoni, adjourned the matter until January 29, 2024, to rule on the bail applications.
