EFCC Set To Arraign Naira Marley, Others Over Internet Fraud
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said that it will arraign musician, Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, anytime from now.
The singer was arrested last Friday by the EFCC in connection with alleged Internet fraud and money laundering.
The EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, in an interview, confirmed that the commission had received the order to detain Naira Marley.
Asked how long the musician would be detained, Orilade simply said, “He will be charged to court. As soon as we have a clear date, the media will be in the know.”
However, a source at the magistrate court told newsmen that an order to keep a suspect in custody could take either seven, 10 or 14 days.
The EFCC had arrested the singer based on “intelligence report” along with another artiste, Temidayo Omoniyi (aka Zlatan), and three other suspects, Tiamiu Abdulrahman, Adewunmi Adeyanju and Musa Abubakar, following an early morning raid at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
