Nigerian music star, Jaywon has been arrested by the police in Lagos for violating the curfew occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to multiple online reports, the singer whose real name is Iledare

Division of the Lagos State Police Command.
The Punch stated that the singer was driving around 11pm when he was
intercepted by policemen in the area.
He was taken into custody and later taken to the State Criminal Investigation and
Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, where he was charged before a mobile court after
his statement had been taken.
During the court proceedings on Tuesday, it was learnt that Jaywon pleaded guilty and
the presiding magistrate ordered him to pay a fine of N10,000, while he was also
