The Lagos State Government has withdrawn charges against singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly called Naira Marley, and former Lagos governorship aspirant, Babatunde Gbadamosi.

The ‘Mafo’ crooner, Naira Marley, was charged together with Gbadamosi and his wife by the Lagos state government for attending a crowded birthday party in violation of the government’s social distancing directive to check the spread of coronavirus.

They were scheduled for arraignment before the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court in Ogba on Wednesday but the government, according to one of the defence counsel, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa SAN, withdrew the four counts charge filed against the three defendants.

Adegboruwa, briefing newsmen on what transpired in the courtroom, said the state withdrew the charges on the condition that the defendants would tender an apology to the President, Muhammadu Buhari and Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

More details soon.
