Nigerian vocalist, Azeez Fashola, famously known as Naira Marley has been released, today 30th of May by The Federal High Court in Ikoyi.
The prosecution counsel, led by Rotimi Oyedepo urged the court to grant accelerated hearing rather than bail as he argued that the final judgment rather than temporary release is what matters.
The prosecution counsel backed up his argument with the argument presented by the defense counsel that Niara Marley is a celebrity. According to reports, the defense counsel seeks an accelerated hearing because Naira Marley as a celebrity has the influence to negatively influence the youth hence should be curbed faster.
The case was presided over by Justice Nicholas Oweibo, who, after listening to both arguments, granted Naira Marley bail of two million Naira and two Sureties.The trail has now been adjourned to 22, 23, and 23 of October for accelerated hearing.
