Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos State on Friday, 6th of October, 2023, issued a production warrant against singer Azeez Fashola, professionally known as Naira Marley.

A production warrant is said to be a warrant issued when a trial judge needs an accused, who is already in custody of the government.
