Abuja for concert

Amidst COVID-19, Naira Marley holds Abuja concert

The Chief Executive Officer of Executive Jets Services Limited, Sam Iwu, has expressed surprise over the failure of the Nigerian authorities to arrest controversial singer, Naira Marley.

Speaking in an exclusive chat with PREMIUM TIMES Tuesday, Mr Iwu, head of the aviation company whose jet conveyed Naira Marley to Abuja for a show at the weekend, frowned at the conduct of the musician and his team.

The CEO of the aviation company had earlier apologised for flyingNaira Marley to Abuja for the now controversial Jabi Lake concert.

Naira Marley performed at the Jabi Lake Mall in Abuja at the weekend amid measures by the Nigerian government to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The singer became the subject of criticisms among Nigerians, especially on social media, after clips of his performance went viral. The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) in its reaction sealed off the Jabi Lake mall for violating COVID-19 restriction orders.

Speaking during the briefing of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Hadi Sirika, Nigeria’s minister for aviation, said the Executive Jets’ flight that conveyed Naira Marley for the concert was approved for a different purpose.

He announced the indefinite suspension of the company and the flight captain for providing false information.


Mr Iwu in his statement on Monday claimed that the flight was approved to convey a judge to Abuja but the passenger had, however, found his way to the capital via another flight.

He explained that the company later got an offer to convey another set of passengers to Abuja, a development that caused confusion as the name “Fashola Babatunde” appeared in the letter
