. Popular Nigerian hip-hop Artiste, Azeez Fashola, fondly known as Naira Marley has been arrested by officers of the Lagos State Police Command.
National Insight gathered that the music star was arrested and detained on thursday, 6th of august because he traveled and held a concert in Abuja which contravened COVID-19 safety guidelines set by the Federal Government earlier this year.
The musician had been in the news in June for travelling to Abuja from Lagos with a private charter flight during COVID-19 lockdown to perform at a concert. The concert which held at the Jabi Lake Mall on Saturday, June 13th, was in contravention of the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force directive on social gatherings.
The concert was put together by Play Network Africa, Traffic Bar, El’Carnival, sponsored by Glenfiddich, and was anchored by a former Big Brother Naija housemate, Kim Oprah.
Naira Marley reportedly presented himself to the Lagos State Police Command’s Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba, on Thursday but was detained for questioning over his action.
