While his case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is still ongoing, a Chief Magistrates Court in Lagos has ordered the arrest of rapper Naira Marley.
This time, Naira is accused of theft: a car and an iPhone.
According to Punch, the prosecutor, ASP Edet Okoi, told the court the story:
One of the vehicles in the musician’s motorcade hit the complainant’s vehicle from the back(sic) while he was throwing out money from his vehicle to his fans.
When the complainant came down from the vehicle to inspect the damage, Obere entered into the complainant’s Camry and drove it off with the motorcade.
Ademola reported to the police and the vehicle was tracked to where it was parked at Jakande Crescent, Oniru in Lagos.
When the police arrived at the location in company with the complainant, Naira Marley and his boys started beating the complainant.
A group of boys obstructed the police from arresting the musician but they were able to apprehend the three defendants.
Naira’s two brothers and a cousin, Idris Fashola, 18, Babatunde Fashola, 24, and Kunle Obere, 22, have been arrested by the police and have appeared in court, and Naira Marley’s arrest has been ordered by the court.
