Naira Marley: New Date Fixed For Singer's Trial

A Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, has adjourned the trial case of Nigerian singer, Naira Marley, till October 5, 2021.

The singer was arraigned in 2019 on 11 counts of credit card fraud brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to which he pleaded not guilty.

A statement by the anti-graft agency’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, revealed that since the commencement of his trial, the prosecution had called two witnesses and forensic experts, Nuru Dalhatu and Augustine Anosike, who revealed to the court how the defendant allegedly frequently visited sites where stolen credit cards were sold to fraudsters, as well as other evidence recovered from the defendant’s mobile device.

At the resumed sitting today (Monday), the prosecution counsel, Bilkisu Buhari, informed the court that the matter was slated for cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, Anosike, and also urged the court to call on the witness for the continuation of the hearing.

However, counsel for the defendant, Akinwale Kola-Taiwo, asked the court for a short date on the grounds that the matter was for mention and not continuation as disclosed by the prosecution.

Consequently, Justice Justice I. Nicholas Oweibo granted the prayer of the defense and adjourned the matter till October 5, 6, and 7 for the continuation of the trial.
