The Lagos police had taken Peters into custody and commenced an investigation after Kodak was electrocuted at his home while attempting to receive a call on her phone as it was charging.

Speaking to TheCable Lifestyle on Thursday, Bala Elkana, a Lagos police spokesperson, said Peters and those who were detained over Kodak’s death were released on bail pending the outcome of the investigation.

“It’s true. He was granted bail pending the outcome of the investigation. We’re currently awaiting a full report on the case. They were released yesterday,” Elkana said

Peters had issued a statement narrating how the nearest hospitals to which they had rushed Kodak refused to admit her after assuming that she was a COVID-19 patient.

“We immediately rushed her to the nearest hospital, which refused to let us into their premises, let alone admit her. They assumed she was a COVID-19 patient,” he had said.

“We tried, but we were not able to gain entry into a second hospital. We eventually got her to a third hospital where she was pronounced dead 30 minutes after arrival.”
