The Lagos State Police Command will, on Tuesday, arraign a controversial singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, over his alleged violation of government’s restriction order to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Naira Marley was identified to be among the more than 20 guests, who attended the birthday party which Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, organised for her husband, in violation of government’s restriction order.
A Lagos Magistrates’ Court, had, on Monday, found Akindele and her husband, Abdul-Rasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz, guilty of illegal gathering and sentenced them to a 14-day community service and a fine of N100,000 each.
