The defendant, who pleaded not guilty, was also charged for operating a boat without an authorized license.

Adeyemi said that the offence of operating without a license contravened Section 311 (1) of the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law, 2018.
Justice Oyefeso thereafter adjourned till September 17 for continuation of trial.
And in a related development, the Lagos State government has also commenced the prosecution of the driver and owner of a vehicle, Dominic Amaechi and Cyprian Arinze respectively over the death of two persons.
The defendants were arraigned in September 2, 2020 before Hon. Justice Oyindamola Ogala of the same Ikeja High Court division.
