After 35 days of incarceration, Nigerian singer Naira Marley has been released from prison and was even pictured with BB Naija’s Khloe.
Naira Marley was left in jail for such a long time as he was unable to perfect his bail conditions.
There were rumors swirling that he was unable to fulfill his bail conditions due to lack of funds, a rumor his legal team squashed with a statement where they said:“Hello Nigerians let us be smart, not everything you hear or read you should believe, the surety has been ready from the day they granted him bail, but we gotta wait for EFCC to go confirm the sureties address.
“We are waiting for them to confirm and the court still needs to sign the release paper.
“To everyone talking rubbish your time will come.”
According to a report on the Punch, Justice Nelson Oweibo who presided over the case, granted a N2m bail to the defendant with two sureties in like sum.
The judge also stipulated that one of the sureties must be a civil servant that is at least Grade Level 10, and the other surety must own a landed property within the court’s jurisdiction.
He has now been released on bail and that has brought happiness to a lot of fans who are pleased that he is now free.
There was a huge reaction upon his release with some people happy and others bewildered at the jubilation.
Of course there were others who only wanted to troll including a Twitter user who said: “Someone should tell Naira Marley that while he was away, Liverpool won UCL, Chelsea won Europa League, Madrid bought Hazard, CR7 won another international laurel over that midget And Ultimately, PERUZZI SLAPPED PAMILERIN TO FACTORY SETTING.”
