A Dublin concert being headlined by musician, Naira Marley, was shut down by Irish police officers in the early hours of Sunday.
Dublin Live reports that the gig was shut down by the police after a gang of youths were spotted fleeing the scene of the concert.
The incident took place before Naira Marley took to the stage to perform.
A police 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.”
Naira Marley is reported to be currently on a mini-European tour.
Why We Reject Senator Elisha Abbo’s Apology— Nigerian Women
The National Council for Women Society (NCWS), FCT Chapter, has rejected the apology of Senator Elisha Abbo for assaulting a nursing mother at an Abuja adult toy shop.
FCT chair of NCWS, Hadiza Umar, on Sunday, advocated for stiffer punishment for Mr Abbo to serve as deterrent to others who assault women in workplace, shops or markets.
Abbo appeared in a video last week where he repeatedly hit a woman in the face for ‘interfering’ in a misunderstanding with the shop attendant.
Rejecting the lawmaker’s apology, Mrs Umar said: “I am here with my executives and members of NCWS FCT chapter for a peaceful demonstration on what an elected senator, who is supposed to serve us did to one of our women.
“We want to stop the barbaric habits on women either at home, in the markets, shops, workplace and everywhere in the country.
“We are women of integrity and mothers. We are not animals and we are saying no to violence against all women and the assault should stop with immediate effect.”
She called on the United Nations and all other international organisations to ensure the prosecution of Abbo in order to guard against future occurrence.
“We reject his apology and we will do everything within the ambit of law to demand justice for our fellow woman who was assaulted,” she said.
Acting Secretary of FCT Social Development Secretariat (SDS), Safiya Umar, said violence against women is an international offence stipulated in the UN Convention and Beijing Charter.
She said the secretariat had sent an invitation to Abbo to explain his side of the story.
Director of Gender Development Department, Hart Agnes, said the department would not relent in doing everything possible to stop violence against women, children and the physically challenged in the FCT.
