Naira Marley Fined N100,000 For Breaking Coronavirus Lockdown Rules

Nigerian musician Azeez Fashola, better known by his stage name Naira Marley, has admitted he broke coronavirus lockdown rules when he travelled to the capital, Abuja, for a concert.

That event was in June when all non-essential travel was banned to prevent the spread of the virus.

The musician was arrested on Thursday alongside his manager.

Both men pleaded guilty and were each fined 100,000 naira.

Nigeria has the third-highest number of coronavirus cases after South Africa and Egypt.
