Nigerian singer, Naira Marley has agreed to self-isolate for the next two weeks following the pardon granted him by the Lagos state government.
The singer who was on attendee at Funke Akindele’s house party surrendered himself to the authorities at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti-Yaba.
The rapper was charged to court on Wednesday, April 4, for violating the social distancing directive of Lagos State Government which was given to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Appearing before the Magistrate Court of Lagos in Ogba, all the charges against the 25-year-old were dropped on the condition that he writes an apology letter addressed to the Lagos State Government and agree to self-isolate in his home for 14 days.
In his apology letter, Marley agreed to the conditions saying; “that I agree to be in self-isolation in my house at the above address for the period of 14 days and that the Lagos State Ministry of Health should supervise my isolation”.
Former Lagos State Governorship candidate, Babatunde Gbadamosi also apologised to the Lagos State Government with a written letter after his charges were withdrawn.
It was not the same for Akindele and her husband JJC Skillz who were also arrested and charged to court.
For their part in hosting the party, the couple was sentenced to 14 days community service and fined N200,000.
