Naira Marley’s Cybercrime Trial: Court Adjourns Proceeding

Naira Marley

The trial of Nigerian singer Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, on charges of cybercrime has been adjourned until November.

The adjournment was necessitated by the artiste’s absence from court.

Naira Marley is facing charges related to cybercrime, with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) prosecuting him.

The charges date back to May 14, 2019, when the EFCC alleged that Naira Marley and his associates conspired to use different Access Bank ATM cards to defraud their victims.

He had previously been granted bail in the sum of N2 million, with two sureties in like sum.

The trial had already commenced in the case, but the singer’s absence from the courtroom on the appointed date prompted the adjournment.

The court’s order for Naira Marley’s production was not met, leading to the decision to postpone the trial.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo presided over the case in the Federal High Court in Lagos.

The court has now set the new dates for the continuation of the trial on November 13 and 30.

The singer is being detained by the police for interrogation in connection with the murder of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad.
