Hip-hop singer, Azeez Fashola, alias Naira Marley who is being tried for alleged car theft alongside his two siblings, Idris and Babatunde Fashola and cousin, Kunle Obere, has opted for out of court settlement.
Naira Marley has reportedly opted for out-of-court settlement after being given a last chance to appear in court over an alleged car theft.
According to lawyers representing Naira Marley, his two brothers Idris Fashola, 18; Babatunde Fashola, 24; and their cousin, Kunle Obere, 22, the four-count charge of conspiracy, stealing, assault and obstructing the police against their clients might be dropped before the next hearing of the case if the talks between them and the complainant’s lawyers is successful.
Mr Awokulehin Ayodeji, the rapper’s counsel, disclosed that the Police are not against a peaceful resolution of the matter.
We hope that an agreement will be reached before the next adjourned date. The police have no problem with an out of court settlement.
