Nigerian upcoming artiste, Sanni Wasiu, popularly known as Lilfrosh has been remanded at the Ikoyi Correctional Centre for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Okeoghene Iyomaterie.
The Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun of the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Yaba on Tuesday ordered his remand till further hearing on his case in March.
Iyomaterie’s manager, Michael, had on October 5, 2020, accused Lilfrosh of assaulting her on his Instagram page.
Lilfrosh, however, denied the claim in an interview.
18-year-old Lilfrosh was invited by the policemen at the Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Alagbon, on Thursday, February 4, 2021, for interrogation.
The victim, who noted that she had been in a relationship with the musician since January 2020, alleged that anytime they disagreed, it had always resulted in violence.
She said, “He consistently slapped me on the face, kicking, pushing me on other sensitive parts. The recent attack happened in September 2020, when he attacked me and rained blow on my head with bruises on my face.
“I partially lost my sight and had sleepless nights. He repeatedly boasted that since he is a well-known musician he is untouchable.”
Lilfrosh’s arraignment was facilitated by the International Association Of Women Lawyers, Lagos State branch.
The musician who had no counsel to represent him in court was arraigned on one count of assault to which he pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Following his plea, Magistrate Olatunbosun ordered his remand in the correctional facility and adjourned the matter till March 9, 2021.
