A total of 2,410 messages in Azeez Fashola a.k.a. Naira Marley's iPhone were analyzed in the ongoing cybercrime case in a Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday.

Augustine Anosike, the second prosecution witness told the court how the messages and different credit card numbers were extracted from the defendants.

Naira Marley is facing prosecution from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on an eleven-count charge of cyber fraud.

The charges border on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit credit cards, and fraud. The court had granted him bail in the sum of N2 million, with two sureties in like sum.

The trial resumed on Monday and Rotimi Oyedepo, the lead prosecutor who examined the witness on exhibit F, told the court that the said exhibit was a conclusion of his analysis on the singer's iPhone.

He told the court that the device analyzed is an iPhone X version 10.6, Model A 1901, with number 07427343432 and an email: [email protected]

Oyedepo further disclosed that a total of 977 Short Message Service (SMS) and 1433 chat messages were found on the device, adding that there were also seven pending status update messages.

After his testimony came to an end, the prosecutor informed the court all the analyzed texts were fully contained in a Compact Disc (CD) but that the prosecution had only printed out those portions which were material to its case.

The EFCC alleges that Marley and his accomplices conspired to use different Access Bank ATM cards to defraud their victims.

The anti-graft agency says that the defendant used a bank credit card issued to another person, in a bid to obtain fraudulent financial gains.

The EFCC also said that the defendant possessed counterfeit credit cards belonging to different people, with intent to defraud which amounted to theft.

The alleged offences contravene the provisions of Sections 1 23 (1) (b), 27 (1) and 33(9) of Cyber Crime (Prohibition) Prevention Act, 2015
