One of the conditions upon which the Lagos State government agreed to withdraw charges against former governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in Lagos State, Babatunde Gbadamosi, his wife Folasade, and popular singer Naira Marley was for the parties to write a formal apology to the Government of Lagos State which will solidify the remorsefulness shown by them.
In compliance with the above condition, both Babatunde Gbadamosi and Naira Marley have written their apology letters to the Lagos State government.
The above letter of apology contains their undertaking to comply with the directives of Mr President and Mr Governor which is the subject matter of the case before the court and to go on 14 days isolation to protect other members of the public from any likely danger.
The state government agreed to withdraw the charge against the three defendants based on the remorse they showed, however, this is still subsequent upon their fulfilling three conditions.
They were therefore not arraigned before the Magistrate Court sitting in Ogba today, April 8.
Gbadamosi and Naira Marley had earlier on Monday turned themselves in to the police after flouting the state government’s restriction order on social distancing.
This was after they attended a party organised by Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele Bello in celebration of her husband’s birthday, Abdulrasheed Bello popularly known as JJC Skillz.
The couple were arraigned on Monday and sentenced to one week of community service and asked to pay a fine of N100,000 each.
