Popular Yoruba movie star, Bimbo Akinsanya, has been arrested and arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court over alleged conspiracy to murder Rev. Pat Ogechi Dennah.
Bimbo and others now at large, were alleged to have on 28 October 2011 at 20, Samuel Street, Akowonjo, Egbeda, a suburb of Lagos, southwest Nigeria, conspired to commit felony by wounding Rev. Dennah.
The police prosecutor, Barth Nwokedi in the two-count charge brought against the defendant, alleged that Bimbo pointed Rev. Dennah to a yet to be identified boy to kill her.
He added that the boy, who is now at large, shot at Rev. Dennah but only wounded her on her left shoulder.
The alleged offence allegedly committed by the actress is punishable under section 338 and 516 of the criminal code, cap C17, vol 11, laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2003.
One of the charges reads: “ That you, Bimbo Akinsanya and others now at large on 28 October, 2011 at about 2030hrs at No. 20, Samuel Street, Akowonjo, Egbeda, Lagos, in the Lagos magisterial district, did point Rev. Pat Ogechi Dennah to a boy yet to be identified, to kill her and the said boy shot her with a gun and wounded her on her left shoulder and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 338 of the criminal code cap C17 Vol. 11 laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2003.”
When the charges were read out to Bimbo, she pleaded not guilty to all the allegations.
She was subsequently granted bail by the presiding magistrate, Mr A.O. Isaac in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties who must be resident in Lagos.
The matter has been adjourned till 30 November, 2011 for trial.
