Nigerian singer, Naira Marley has appeared before an Abuja mobile court again, a day after his arraignment in a Lagos State Special Offences Mobile Court in Oshodi where he was fined N100K for flouting the interstate travel ban.
Naira Marley’s arraignment in Abuja is for violating COVID-19 protocols.
While Naira Marley faced a one-count charge of breaking the presidential ban on interstate travel during COVID-19 period in Lagos, the FCT Administration had filed a four-count charge against him for hosting a concert in Jabi Lake Mall in Abuja, in clear violation of set COVID-19 directives on interstate movement and public gatherings.
After the charges were read to him, Naira Marley pleaded guilty and the presiding magistrate Idayat Akanni awarded him a fine of N200, 000.
Naira Marley whose real name is Azeez Fashola had earlier been arraigned before a Lagos State Special Offences Mobile Court in Oshodi for flouting the presidential ban on interstate travel when he flew from Lagos to Abuja for his June 13 concert.
