They turned themselves in at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, on Monday and were detained after the police asked them and others, who attended a birthday party organised by a popular actress, Funke Akindele-Bello, aka Jenifa, to report at the SCIID.

According to Premium Times, a spokesperson said that Naira Marley’s arraignment which was originally slated for Tuesday could not hold, hence the bail.

Recall that they were all invited for questioning after attending the birthday party of JJC Skillz on Sunday April 5th, thereby violating the social distancing order of the Lagos state government.

The lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic in the state stalled their arraignment at the state magistrate court yesterday April 7.


This is coming after Nollywood actress Funke Akindele and her husband JJC Skillz were sentenced to 14 days of community service by a Lagos State Magistrate Court for having a house party, which violated coronavirus restriction order.
