An Abuja Mobile Court presided over by Magistrate Idayat Akanni on Friday convicted Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley.
Fasola was charged with four counts
These were violation of interstate travel ban, non-use of face mask, breaking of social distancing order and attending a concert despite COVID-19 restriction order.
Naira Marley was fined N200,000.
Akanni, set the fine after the musician pleaded guilty.
His counsel, Mohammed Yunusa, said his client was made to believe that the organisers of the concert had procured all the approval from the government.
“This will serve as a deterrent to other Nigerians”, Umana stated.
The concert was held at the Jabi Lake Mall on June 13.
It was organized by Play Network Africa, Traffic Bar, El’Carnival, and sponsored by Glenfiddich.
Following public outrage, the FCT Administration shut down the mall.
The ban was, however, lifted late in July
