naira merley - Dublin Police Shut Down Concert Headlined By NairaMarley Over Gang Violence

A Dublin concert headlined by controversial rapper, Naira Marley was shut down by the police last night after a gang of youths were spotted fleeing the scene.

The incident unfolded at Lost Lane just off Grafton Street before Naira Marley took to the stage to perform. According to reports, about 30 young men were seen running out of the premises in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The scene remained closed to the public and police in Dublin have since confirmed that a number of weapons have been seized and a man in his 20s arrested in connection with the incident.

An eye witness who was at the concert said, "an African artist ‘Naira Marley’ was headlining a show at Lost Lane yesterday with some other upcoming acts. We came for the event which started around 10:30pm. People were waiting for the artist to perform when all of a sudden, Gardai came to the venue, drove everyone out and shut it down.

"Afterwards Garda (Dublin Police) came in tens and filled everywhere. Everyone was still surprised and curious as to what was going on because no gang attacked or anything. They [the crowd] filled the street around the venue confused as to where to go and some [were] angry at the organisers asking for refund."

In a statement, Dublin police confirmed that investigations are ongoing. A spokesman said: "Gardai are investigating an incident where a large number of male youths congregated outside a premises on Adam Court, Dublin 2 at approximately 1am on 7 July 2019. A number of offensive weapons were located after the youths departed and were seized by Gardaí. One male in his early 20s was arrested and was charged in relation to this offence. Investigations are ongoing."
