A Chief Magistrates' Court in Lagos on Monday requested that a Nigerian musician, Adeyemi Fashola, also known as Naira Marley ought to be captured and charged over supposed Vehicle theft.

The central judge, Mr Tajudeen Elias, requested that the Investigating Police Officer (IPO), Sgt. Sunday Idoko, dealing with the case must present Naira Marley in court on the following date of adjournment.

However, two of the musician's brothers and his cousins showed up in court over supposed robbery of a vehicle and a phone.

The defendants, Idris Fashola, 18, Babatunde Fashola, 24 and Kunle Obere, 22, are facing a four-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, assault and hindering the arrest of Naira Marley.

The chief magistrate grant the three defendants N500,000 bail with two sureties in like sum.

He ordered the IPO to produce Naira Marley before the court on Dec. 21, when the case would be listed for further hearing.

The prosecutor, ASP Edet Okoi, told the court that the three defendants committed the offenses 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 X5 worth N330,000 belonging to one Mr Adelekan Ademola.

Okoi alleged that the second defendant, Babatunde Fashola and others at large hindered 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.

Ademola reported to the police and the vehicle was tracked to where it was parked at Jakande Crescent, Oniru in Lagos.
