Naira Marley fined N100,000 for breaching COVID-19 lockdown restrictions
Nigerian musician Azeez Fashola, better known by his stage name Naira Marley, has pleaded guilty to breaching Covid-19 lockdown restrictions when he travelled to the capital, Abuja, for a concert.
The musician was arrested on Thursday alongside his manager for the offence committed in June when the government had banned non-essential travel to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
They pleaded guilty and were each fined N100,000($258; £197).
The airline that flew them from the commercial hub of Lagos to Abuja was suspended indefinitely by the aviation minister but later allowed to resume operations.
The airline said it mistook the musician’s surname for a judge who was on essential travel.
Nigeria’s Channel television tweeted:
