Naira Marley, Sam Larry Granted Bail After Weeks in Detention



Controversial Nigerian singer, Abdulazeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, and his aide, Samson Elutu, also known as Sam Larry, have finally been granted bail after spending several weeks in detention.


According to a report received, the embattled industry figures were required to provide three sureties who would stand as guarantors, with a substantial sum of N20 million.


Additionally, Naira Marley and Sam Larry were instructed to surrender their international passports and to appear weekly at the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID).


The Magistrate sternly warned them to refrain from attempting to contact her directly, as any such attempts would be documented and potentially disclosed during court proceedings.


This development came after a Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos State, on October 4, 2023, remanded Naira Marley and Sam Larry over allegations of bullying the late former Marlian Music signee Mohbad.


Although the Lagos State Police Command initially requested a 30-day remand for Naira Marley and the others in order to complete their ongoing investigation, Magistrate Adeola Olatunbosun ruled that a 21-day remand would be sufficient.
