Posted by

Azeez Fashola, better known by his stage name Naira Marley, and Balogun Eletu, better known by his stage name Sam Larry, have been granted N20 million bail each, along with three responsible sureties, by a Yaba Magistrate Court in Lagos State.

The two were ordered to turn in their international passports by Magisterate Adeola Olatunbosun as a condition of their release.

Additionally, the magistrate mandated that they attend every week at the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

A special warning was added by the magistrate presiding over the case, who issued a firm warning that any attempt to get in touch with her would be captured on camera and would be revealed at public court sessions.

“The defendants are required to turn in their passports and attend weekly at the State Criminal Investigation Department as part of the bail requirements.

Olatunbosun declared, “Any attempts to get in touch with me directly would be recorded and possibly disclosed in open court proceedings.”

When the two were discovered to have been connected to the passing of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, they were detained upon their return to Nigeria.

Social media footage surfaced of Sam Larry brutally abusing Mobad, while other videos featured boys who appeared to be acting on Naira Marley’s orders attacking the late artist.
