Naira’s two brothers and his cousin, Idris Fashola, 18, Babatunde Fashola, 24; and Kunle Obere, 22 are co-defendants in the case and have been charged with four counts of conspiracy, stealing, assault, and obstruction of the arrest of Naira Marley.
According to Punch, ASP Edet Okoi described the happenings to the court. He said:
“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.”
Meanwhile, the singer’s alleged fraud case with the EFCC is still ongoing.
