Popular filmmaker and marketer, Seun Egbegbe was arrested on Tuesday morning for attempting to steal nine iPhones at popular Lagos market, Computer Village.

On November 24, he was granted bail after being brought before A. J. Atunwa at Roselyne Omotosho Court House in GRA, Ikeja, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The judge approved the suspect’s bail with two guarantees that have a minimum of N2m in their bank accounts, and property in Ikeja, Lagos, with the case getting adjourned till February 2017.

Tho Seun has slammed reports he attempted suicide laying emphasis that he has nothing to fear since he believes in his innocence, a Lagos-based lawyer, Adigun Bankole, who spoke with NetNG, says the socialite shouldn’t get too comfortable as he might still end up behind bars.

He said;

‘On the account of if he is found guilty on the next adjourned date depends on the charge profiled against him as well as evidence adduced to that effect. In any case, if found guilty of stealing as provided for under section 390 of the criminal code he shall be liable for three years imprisonment,’ he said

Well, the accused is still innocent by virtue of section 36 of the 1999 constitution as amended which provides that until found guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction, an accused is still presumed innocent hence the bail is inevitable though at the discretion of the court.

The lawyer also added that if the court deems it fit, Seun could be given the option of paying a fine.
