Singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, was this morning August 7, arraigned before an Abuja mobile court for violating COVID-19 protocols.

The FCT Administration filed a four-count charge against him for hosting a concert in Jabi Lake Mall in Abuja, in clear violation of COVID-19 directives on June 13, flouting the presidential ban on Interstate travels and public gatherings.

After the charges were read to him, Naira Marley pleaded guilty and the presiding magistrate Idayat Akanni handed down a fine of N200, 000 on him. This comes a day after a mobile court in Lagos also fined him and his manager N100, 000 for travel out of the state for the concert.

Naira Marley flew in a chartered plane meant for a Lagos judge to the Federal Capital Territory for the concert which was held on June 13.
