In a turn of events, the charismatic Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, and the vibrant show promoter, Sam Larry, have emerged from the clutches of detention, marking the end of a chapter filled with legal complexities.
Their release, confirmed by Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, comes after the duo successfully met the stipulated bail conditions. This development puts an end to the suspense surrounding their legal ordeal.
On November 6, a Magistrate’s Court in Yaba, Lagos State, granted Naira Marley and Sam Larry bail amounting to N20 million, with three sureties. The legal saga traces back to October 6, when the duo faced charges related to the circumstances surrounding the death of the beloved singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun, overseeing the case, mandated the defendants to surrender their passports and adhere to a weekly reporting routine at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti.
In confirming their newfound freedom, Hundeyin affirmed, “Naira Marley and Sammy Larry, having met their bail conditions, have been released.” The conclusion of this legal chapter unveils the artists’ determination to overcome legal hurdles, promising a new beginning beyond the shadows of controversy.
