Singer, rapper and boss of Marlian Music, Afeez Fashola, otherwise known as Naira Marley, has reacted to the arrest of some school kids by Amotekun operatives for modelling themselves as him.
Naira Marley is considered as a bad influence to children and youths by many Nigerian parents due to his arrest by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for cyber crimes. Naira Marley was arrested in 2019 when he was accused of promoting cyber crimes and fraudulent activities in his music.
Although, he is loved by many Nigerian youths and children, many still consider him as a bad influence to the society because of his lifestyle and the type of Music he makes.
The school kids who were arrested by Amotekun officials were caught in the bush. They were labeled as criminals by the narrator of the story who claimed the elder one called himself Naira Marley.
The arrest of the school children caught the attention of the Marlian president as he took to social media to drag the school staff who participated in the arrest of the children.
Naira Marley said the school staffs should be arrested and pleaded with his fans to connect him to the school or any of the kids that were arrested.
In the viral video, a lady in the video, reportedly their teacher, called the young criminals and also revealed that the bits were arrested in the bush.
