By Oba Michael Soyebo

Lagos popular celebrity excort, Matharoo sisters have been declared wanted indefinitely in Nigeria as the case they have with Femi Otedola lingers in a Lagos court. Kiran and Taranjot Matharoo alongside their Nigerian accomplice, Babatunde Oyebode a.k.a Baudex are facing charges of extortion, blackmail and cyberbullying before a magistrate court in Yaba.

Trouble emanated for the sisters and Oyebode after billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola penned a petition to the Nigerian police on an attempt by the trio to blackmail and extort him. After their first appearance in court, the sisters absconded leaving only Oyebode who has been diligent in making court appearances and those in the know revealed that the sisters obtained a temporary travel document that aided their escape.

People and Places can tell you that the petition against the trio was filed by three petitioners namely; Femi Otedola, Dapo Balogun and Omeregie Ivie (Lawyer). The sisters and Oyebode were tracked down to Eko Hotel, Lagos and arrested by the Nigerian police force. They were arraigned before a magistrate court in Yaba and granted bail in the sum of N500,000 each and two sureties each. The police seized an apple laptop, a camera and 2 Canadian passports from the sisters.

One of the sureties identified as Alhaji Waheed Sobunlo stood as a surety to the trio. He wrote an undertaking to provide the trio on every date of adjournment. The undertaking was written on 26/12/2016. At a second hearing into the case on in January 2017, the sisters did not appear in court and this prompted the presiding judge to issue a bench warrant for the sisters. It was later uncovered that Sobunlo and 2 other sureties had also absconded. Only one of the sureties was arrested and he is currently in prison custody.
