Embattled singer, Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, and Lagos socialite, Balogun Eletu, known as Sam Larry were on Monday morning, granted bail in the sum of N20m with three responsible sureties by a Magistrate’s Court sitting in Yaba, Lagos State.
Naira Marley, Sam Larry and two others were on October 6 arraigned and remanded over their alleged involvement in circumstances surrounding the death of a musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
The defendants were told to submit their passports by the magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun told.
They were also ordered to report weekly to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti.
“As part of the bail conditions, the defendants are to surrender their passports and make weekly appearances at the State Criminal Investigation Department,” Olatunbosun ruled.
The magistrate also warned that no one should contact her directly on the case.
“Any attempts to contact me directly would be recorded and potentially disclosed in open court proceedings,” she added.
