He was remanded in the custody of the EFCC but later granted a bail of N200 million which he couldn’t fulfill.

On June 10, the commission accused the socialite of flouting a court order and travelling to Dubai with a new passport.

On June 22, a Lagos court revoked the bail granted to him due to his absence from trial.
