Musician, Naira Marley, has reacted humorously to an order for his arrest by a Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

Chief magistrate Tajudeen Elias on Monday ordered that the Investigating Police Officer (IPO), Sunday Idoko, handling the case must present Naira Marley in court on December 21 for arraignment over car theft.


In a tweet on Monday night, the singer said he owned Bentley and Porsche luxury cars and could not understand why he would be involved in car theft.

“Car theft?? 😂😂😂😂 maybe I need to post my Bentley, Porsche or benzo. If u lot like try stain my name from today till tomorrow I will still be the next president and who’s Adeyemi Fashola aka Naira Marley. Another free promo I’m guessing,” he said.

In another tweet, he said: “Car theft ko grand theft ni.”


Two of the musician’s brothers and his cousins appeared in court over alleged theft of a car and a cell phone.

The defendants, Idris Fashola, 18, Babatunde Fashola, 24; and Kunle Obere, 22, are facing a four-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, assault and obstructing the arrest of  Naira Marley.

The chief magistrate granted the three defendants N500,000 bail with two sureties in like sum.

Prosecutor Edet Okoi told the court that the three defendants committed the offences on December 16 at Eko Hotel Roundabout on Victoria Island, Lagos.


He said that the trio who were in a motorcade with Naira Marley, stole a Toyota Camry vehicle with Registration No. FEE 120 AA valued at N1.8 million and an iPhone X5 worth N330,000 belonging to Adelekan Ademola.

He added that the three defendants and others at large assaulted the complainant by beating him up.
