The car theft charge filed by the police against Adeyemi Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has reportedly been dismissed by a magistrates court in Lagos.
The Nation reports that Tajudeen Elias, the chief magistrate, dismissed the charge filed against the popular musician and his two brothers and their cousin on Tuesday, January 14.
The charge was dismissed after the judge received a settlement agreement between the complainant Adelekan Ademola and Naira Marley and the other defendants.
