Naira Marley and his brothers are Free from Car Theft Court Case, See Why

Naira Marley is a free man again as a magistrate court in Lagos dismissed the car theft case against him and his three relatives.

The Chief Magistrate Tajudeen Elias struck out the four charges against the singer and demised the case in a ruling on Tuesday, January 14, 2020.

The case was dismissed because a settlement agreement was reached between the complainant, Mr Adelekan Ademola, and the defendants - Naira Marley, his two brothers, Idris Fashola, Babatunde Fashola and his cousin, Kunle Obere.

Recall that Naira Marley and his brothers were accused of conspiracy, stealing, assault, and obstructing the police in 2019.

During the first hearing of the case, ASP Edet Okoi, the prosecutor made it known to the court that the defendants committed the offences on Dec. 16, at Eko Hotel Roundabout on Victoria Island, Lagos.

He said that the trio who were in a motorcade with Naira Marley, stole a Toyota Camry vehicle with Registration No. FEE 120 AA valued at N1.8 million and an iPhone XS worth N330,000 belonging to one Mr Adelekan Ademola.

Okoi alleged that the second defendant, Babatunde Fashola and others at large obstructed the police while performing their lawful duty and prevented them from arresting Naira Marley.

“One of the vehicles in the musician’s motorcade hit the complainant’s vehicle from the back 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."

But now, the police's story won't longer hold water since the Chief Magistrate has agreed on the out of court settlement presented by the defence counsel. So, it is a goal to the marlians!
