Naira Marley

The alleged  Internet fraud trial of Nigerian artiste, Afeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley has been adjourned by a Federal High Court in Lagos for 85 days.

The singer is standing trial on an 11-count charge bordering on alleged money laundering and internet fraud preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

On May 20, Naira Marley pleaded not guilty and was released on bail after he was arraigned. EFCC alleged, that some of the credit cards discovered in Marley’s residence bore the fictitious names Nicole Louise Malyon and Timea Fedorne Tatar.

According to the agency, the items were used for alleged internet fraud as the commission said the offences contravened the Money Laundering (Prohibition) and the Cyber Crimes Acts.

The counsel to the EFCC, Bilkisu Buhari, informed the judge, that the matter was slated for cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, Anosike. She prayed the court to invite the witness for the continuation of the hearing.

However, the defence counsel Akinwale Kola-Taiwo, prayed the court for a short date for the continuation of trial on the grounds that “the matter is for mention today and not continuation as disclosed by the prosecution.”

Justice Oweibo granted his prayer, as he adjourned the case till October 5, 6 and 7 for continuation of trial.
