Lagos State Government Withdraws Charge Against Naira Marley And Gbadamosi
Lagos State Government has given conditions for withdrawing the charge against Nigerian hip-hop star, Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley and former Lagos governorship aspirant, Babatunde Gbadamosi for not heeding to the state government lockdown/social distancing order.
Naira Marley and Babatunde Gbadamosi were among those that attended Funke Akindele's House Party.
The descision was taken after defendants were given three conditions to fulfill. The conditions given to them are as follows :
1. They have to write a formal apology to the Government of Lagos State which will solidify the remorsefulness shown by them.
2. They have to give an undertaking in writing that they will continue to comply with the directives of Mr. President and Mr. Governor which is the subject matter of the case before the court.
3. In view of the danger which the state believes they've put themselves by attending a gathering exceeding 20 persons, they must agree to go on 14 days isolation to protect other members of the public from any likely danger.
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Yakub Oshaola, told the court that if the defendants agree to the conditions listed above, the four (4) count charge will be withdrawn and the case closed.
