Naira Marley In Police Custody Upon Return To Nigeria | Fab.ng

Naira Marley, a known Nigerian Afrobeats artist whose legal name is Azeez Fashola, finds himself in a legal development as he has been detained by the Lagos State Police Command in connection with the tragic passing of his former signee, Mohbad.

The spokesperson for the Lagos police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, officially confirmed that Naira Marley is detained, stating,

Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley has been taken into custody for interrogation and other investigation activities.”

Adding to the unfolding events, Naira Marley posted on his Twitter page earlier on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, to publicly announce his return to Lagos and express his willingness to fully cooperate with the ongoing investigation, emphasizing the gravity of the situation and his commitment to addressing the matter in accordance with the law.

Naira Marley’s Twitter post read,

“I’d like to share that I’ve just arrived back in Lagos, Nigeria to assist the authorities with the ongoing investigation. It’s important I do my part for Imole.

He further added,

“I’ll be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail.”

After the death of his former signee, Naira Marley was faced with tremendous public criticism. This arose from the alleged treatment he gave the late singer, Mohbad when he was alive. The circumstances surrounding his death also point strong fingers at Marley.

Naira Marley took to his Instagram page one day to share his part of the story and to assure the listening and watching audience that he is fully ready to cooperate with the police regarding the death of Mohbad as soon as he returns to Nigeria.

Within his statement, Naira Marley also acknowledged the fact that he had portrayed an ill character towards the late singer, but that he is entirely free and far from having a hand in the singer’s death.

Stay tuned for further updates regarding this issue as we are yet to find out the outcome of Naira Marley’s detention.

Bobrisky: 6 Months In Ikoyi Prison For Naira Abuse | Fab.ng

Popular Nigerian influencer Idris Okuneye, also known as Bobrisky, was recently sentenced to six months in jail without the option of a fine. The judge, Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos, delivered the sentence on Friday, April 12, 2024.

Bobrisky’s arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last week stemmed from accusations of mutilating Nigerian Naira currency.

The EFCC at the time of the arrest said they had “commenced investigation into her for allegedly spraying naira notes.”

The EFCC investigation revealed that Bobrisky allegedly defaced Nigerian currency at other events in the past. Bobrisky cooperated with the EFCC by showing up for questioning on April 4th and providing statements. The EFCC also initially accused Bobrisky of money laundering, but these charges were dismissed by the court.

Bobrisky’s sentence has sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians. Some believe the punishment is too severe for defacing money, which is sometimes done during celebrations in Nigeria.

“She was used as a scapegoat. Why no option of fine, please???? What point are they trying so hard to prove? I hope she learns to not always brag on social media that she is above the law when she gets out too,” someone said.

They just used her as a scapegoat and if we’re being fair, she doesn’t deserve it. 99% percent of people at events spray money exactly the way she sprayed money in that video. This isn’t fair,” another person said.

Jnr Pope Drowns Hours After Posting A Video On A Boat | Fab.ng

Tragic news for Nollywood. Actor Junior Pope Odonwodo, known as Jnr Pope, passed away on Wednesday, April 10th, 2024. He drowned in a boat accident while on a movie set in Asaba, Delta State.

There were initial reports that he was receiving medical treatment, but this was later confirmed to be inaccurate.

“What God cannot do does not exist. Junior Pope is alive. He is taking treatment in the hospital,” Rollas said in a later deleted post on Instagram.

The Actors Guild of Nigeria’s president, Emeka Rollas, initially announced that Jnr Pope was receiving medical care. This caused some confusion because it wasn’t immediately clear that he had passed away.

Later on Thursday morning, Rollas confirmed the sad news of Jnr Pope’s passing. He expressed his deep regret, saying their initial hope that Jnr Pope would recover was unfortunately short-lived.

“My first post was out of excitement when we noticed his tingling fingers. Two notable hospitals tried their best to revive him but to no avail. God knows the best. We finally lost him.”

Jnr Pope leaves behind a wife and three children.

The Actors Guild President also confirmed that another person, Mr. Friday, had been found. However, there are still three people missing from the boat accident: a makeup artist, a sound guy, and one other person.

This tragedy happened just a few hours after Jnr Pope posted a video on Instagram. The video showed him riding in a wooden boat without a life jacket, which seemed to be part of a scene for the movie he was filming.

“See me lamenting. The risk we take to entertain you. Crossing river 9ja yesterday with no life jacket. Na wahoooooo. Who does that?” Jnr Pope captioned the video.

Status Of Jnr Pope After Drowning Incident Still Unknown | Fab.ng

There’s confusion surrounding the situation of Nollywood actor Jnr Pope Odonwodo after a drowning incident on set. Reports suggest he drowned in a boat accident while filming in Asaba, the Delta State capital, on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

Multiple sources reported his death, sharing videos of what appeared to be his lifeless body. However, Emeka Rollas, the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), announced late on Wednesday that the actor was responding to medical treatment.

“What God cannot do does not exist. Junior Pope is alive. He is taking treatment in the hospital,” he posted on Instagram. But he removed the post just 30 minutes later, adding to the confusion…

Sadly, two other people who were working on the movie also drowned. Nobody knows their names yet, and there hasn’t been any news about them since it happened.

This accident took place just a few hours after the actor, Pope, posted a video on Instagram. In the video, he was riding a boat made of wood without wearing a life jacket. It seems like this boat ride was for a scene in the movie.

“See me lamenting. The risk we take to entertain you. Crossing river 9ja yesterday with no life jacket. Na wahoooooo. Who does that?” Jnr Pope captioned the video.
