Tiwa Savage: Police arraign 4 over threat to life



The police on Tuesday arraigned four persons, Eniola Adeniyi, Donatus Osabanumonu, Idorenyi Okon and Michael Rodolphe before a Yaba Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly threatening Tiwa Savage’s life.

They were arraigned by the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Annex, Alagbon Close, Ikoyi, Lagos, before Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun on three counts of conspiracy, intent to defraud and threat to life.

The prosecutor, Idowu Oshubure, told the court that the defendants allegedly committed the offence on or before 13 April 2023.

It gathered that the failed plot was allegedly planned by Savage’s new domestic staff, who had been entrusted with vital information about her.

The charge sheet partly read, “That you, Eniola Adeniyi, Donatus Osabanumonu, Idorenyi Okon, Michael Rodolphe, and others at large on or before April 13, 2023, in Lagos State, within the jurisdiction of Lagos, in this honourable court, with intent to commit the offence, fraudulently conspired among yourselves to conduct yourselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace, to the annoyance of one Tiwa Savage and you thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 411 Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
