Popular Nigerian musician, Naira Marley has reacted to the court order for his arrest over alleged car theft.
Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, on Monday, ordered that Marley should be in remission and arraigned over alleged car theft.
The chief magistrate, Mr. Tajudeen Elias, ordered that the investigating police officer (IPO), Sgt. Sunday Idoko, handling the case should present Naira Marley in court on a future date of adjournment.
However, 2 of the musician’s brothers and his cousins appeared in court over alleged theft of a car and a cell phone.
The defendants, Idris Fashola, 18, Babatunde Fashola, 24; and Kunle Obere, 22, are facing a four-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, assault and obstructing the arrest of Naira Marley.
The chief magistrate granted the 3 defendants N500,000 bail with 2 sureties in like total.
He ordered the IPO to produce Naira Marley before the court on Dec. 21, once the case would be listed for further hearing.
Reacting, Marley on his Twitter page created a mockery of the cause for his arrest.
He wrote: “Car theft? maybe I need to post my Bentley, Porsche or benzo.
“If you lot like attempt stain my name from today till tomorrow I will still be the next president and who’s Adeyemi Fashola aka Naria Marley. Another free promo I’m shot.”
