Naira Marley arrested for breaking Covid19 rules
Self acclaimed president of the Marlians gang Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley has been arrested and detained by the Lagos State Police for holding a concert in Abuja despite the ban on gatherings and events of more than 50 persons in the country in line with the Coronavirus protocols.
Naira Marley had earlier made headlines after videos surfaced online showing him boarding an airplane at a time interstate travels were banned and later mingled with fans during the music concert.
Spokesperson for the police in Lagos, Bala Elkana, confirmed that Naira Marley was arraigned in court for the offence.
He said, “We are in court as we speak. He will be arraigned for violating the interstate travel order. That is the aspect that concerns Lagos State.”
Naira Marley who previously took offence at being referred together with his band as a set of useless people by ExecuJet accused the travel agency of defamation and demanded an apology. The singer who appeared indifferent towards the whole saga showed no remorse for his actions.
