Jabi Lake Mall, Venue of Naira Marley’s Concert, Sealed

Jabi Lake Mall was on Sunday sealed indefinitely by men of the Federal Capital Territory Ministerial Enforcement Task Force on COVID-19 Restrictions, for flouting the Government’s restrictions on social gatherings.

Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, had used the venue for a musical concert hosted by PlayNetwork Africa and Traffic Bar which was supposed to be a ‘drive-in-concert.

The action, the Taskforce said, was part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

“The FCT Ministerial Task Team on #COVID19 seals up Jabi Lake Mall indefinitely for violating Presidential Task Force’s directives on the ban on public gatherings as part of measures to contain the spread of the dreaded pandemic in the territory,” the Federal Capital Territory Authority said on its Twitter handle on Sunday.

Marley was arrested in April for violating lockdown restrictions and may again be arrested.

Aside attending the concert, Marley allegedly flew into Abuja from Lagos, thereby violating the ban on inter-state travels and non-essential flights.
