It has been reported that Ambode’s former chef, Abayomi, has been brought before the Yaba Magistrate court by the State Security Service (SSS) on charges of conspiracy and theft.

According to PUNCH, during Abayomi’s arraignment, the prosecuting counsel from the SSS, Joshua Babalola, informed the court that the suspect, along with others who are still at large, conspired and committed the offences at the residence of the former governor in Ikoyi.

Babalola stated that the defendant fled to Old Garage, Molorundo Local Government Area, Osun State, where he was apprehended on March 7, 2024.

The prosecutor noted that the offences committed contravene Sections 287 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

In her ruling, the magistrate ordered that Abayomi be remanded for 30 days at the Ikoyi Correctional Centre and adjourned the case until April 8, 2024, for further investigation and presentation of facts.
