The Lagos State Government has withdrawn charges against the musician, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley and Babatunde Gbadamosi.
Naira Marley and Gbadamosi were charged before the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Ogba for attending a crowded birthday party in violation of the government’s social distancing directive to check the spread of coronavirus.
According to one of the defence counsel, Mr Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN), the government withdrew the four counts filed against the three defendants.
At the end of the proceedings, Adegboruwa briefed journalists on what transpired in the courtroom, stating that the charges were withdrawn on the condition that the defendants would tender an apology to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
