According to Channels TV, Naira Marley and his manager Seyi Awonuga have been “awarded a fine of one hundred thousand naira each“ for violating COVID-19 lockdown orders.
The duo pleaded guilty to the case which was presided by the Magistrate of a Lagos State Special Offences (Mobile) Court in Oshodi, a police statement disclosed on Thursday.
Recall that Naira Marley had caused a social media uproar after embarking on a non-essential trip from Lagos to Abuja in June amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The federal government had suspended the airline, Executive Jet Services, which flew the artist, although the ban has now been lifted.
On April 9, Naira Marley signed an undertaking to join the Lagos state government’s campaign against the spread of COVID-19 after he was charged for breaching the state’s social distancing directive.
