Naira Marley internet fraud allegation: The alleged internet fraud case involving Nigerian singer Afeez Adeshina Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley has been adjourned for three months.
If you recollect in 2019, the singer was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged internet fraud.
On Monday, July 12, 2021, Justice Nicholas Oweibo of a Federal High Court in Lagos adjourned till October 5 (85 days) to continue the alleged internet fraud trial.
At the resumption of proceedings, 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.”
Consequently, Justice Oweibo granted the prayer of the defense and adjourned the matter till October 5, 6, and 7 for the continuation of trial, DailyNigerian reports.
