Singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has been released on bail following the failure to arraign him on Tuesday.
Lagos police spokesman, Bala Elkana, said he is expected to return on Wednesday when the court sits.
“Naira Marley was granted bail today (Tuesday) since the court is not sitting today,” Mr Elkana told Premium Times.
“Not just him, but the three other people who were in police custody were granted bail to report back tomorrow (Wednesday) when the court will be in session.
“Naira Marley and the other three persons slept in custody on Monday, the intent was to take them to court today but since the court was not in session, we can’t keep on holding them, so they were granted bail to report back tomorrow (Wednesday).”
Elkana did not say if a former governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Babatunde Gbadamosi, and his wife were among those granted bail.
They had turned themselves in on Monday for attending the birthday party of JJC Skillz, husband of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, despite the lockdown in Lagos.
Funke and her husband were sentenced by a Lagos State Magistrate Court to 14 days of community service and a fine of N100, 000 each.
