The Lagos State Police Command has released on bail the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party in the state in the 2019 gubernatorial election, Babatunde Gbadamosi, and his wife.
The couple were released on Tuesday alongside Naira Marley, after they perfected their bail conditions.
The trio had on Monday turned themselves in at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, and were detained after the police asked them and others, who attended a birthday party organised by popular actress, Funke Akindele-Bello, to report at the SCIID.
More than 20 persons were in attendance at the party in contravention of the state government’s social distancing directive to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, who confirmed the release of Gbadamosi, his wife and Naira Marley stated that they would be arraigned today.
“They (Gbadamosi, his wife and Fashola) are on bail because the court did not sit today (Tuesday) and we could not keep them beyond the constitutional time given. They all slept in the cell yesterday (Monday) and they have all been granted bail and asked to report back tomorrow (Wednesday) so that they can be arraigned,” he stated.
