Nigerian rapper and singer, Azeez Fashola, professionally known as Naira Marley, has been arraigned at the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja for organizing a concert in Abuja during COVID-19 interstate lockdown.

According to the DAILY POST, Naira Marley is being charged for violating COVID-19 directives banning interstate travels put in place to curb the spread of coronavirus when he traveled from Lagos to Abuja for a concert on Saturday, July 13, 2020, in Abuja.

The concert which was held at the Jabi Lake Mall drew a lot of public outrage, which resulted in the Federal Government shutting down the event center at the time.

The concert at the Jabi Lake Mall was attended by many who broke the COVID-19 lockdown directives and it has been revealed that those who accompanied the music star will also be apprehended.


This burgeoning news platform gathered that Naira Marley’s arrest was based on orders of The Inspector-General of Police.

Lagos Police spokesman, Bala Elkana confirmed that Naira Marley presented himself at the Command Headquarters on Thursday and has been taken to court.

“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,” he clarified.

Ex-BBNaija star, KimOprah was also part of the crew that flew with Naira Marley from Lagos to Abuja in a private jet for the concert and she risks being arrested too.
