Embattled singer and Marlian record label owner, Abdulazeez Fashola ‘Naira Marley’ and his close associate Samson Elutu better known as Sam Larry, are trending on social media over reports they have been granted bail after weeks in detention.
Royalng.com recall the two were arrested over reports linking them to the death of former Marlian signee Ilerioluwa Aloba ‘Mohbad.’
Bolanle Cole, a human rights lawyer on X, formerly known as Twitter, revealed Naira Marley and Sam Larry were granted bail by a magistrate court. They, however, have to provide three sureties with a substantial sum of N20 million to process their release.
The duo were also ordered to surrender their international passports and make weekly appearances at the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
Bolanle revealed the magistrate warned against reaching her directly as attempts to contact her would be recorded and potentially disclosed in open court proceedings.
Sam Larry and Naira Marley granted bail with 3 sureties with 20m each.
They are to deposit their international passport and report at State CID every Tuesday.
The magistrate warns that if anyone calls her number, it will be recorded and played in the open court.
