FG suspends airline for flying Naira Marley to Abuja

The Federal Government on Monday suspended an airline for conveying Naira Marley to Abuja for a concert.

The minister for aviation, Hadi Sirika, who made this known during the daily COVID19 briefing said that the flight was approved for a different purpose.

Sirika said that the flight was initially approved to convey a serving Justice from Lagos to Abuja adding that the company has been suspended indefinitely for providing false information to convey the singer to Abuja for the show.

The Minister also said that the flight captain will equally be sanctioned for providing false information.

Recall that the development was triggered by the Naira Marley’s ‘Drive-in’ concert which was held on Saturday night at Jabi Lake Mall.

The event attracted criticism from Nigerians as the attendees were clustered in a viral video while Naira Marley performed despite an increase in coronavirus cases.
