Naira Marley not released, as reported earlier after a video of the rapper surfaced on the internet moments ago.
This is according to a new report by the EFCC who stated that the rapper’s release was staged by his friends, SaharaReporters reports.
A top source in the EFCC revealed that the video was mere propaganda by friends of the musician who are desperate to launder his image.
In the video circulating across social media, the rapper was spotted in a joyous mood with his fans and friends and could be seen making an entrance into a private vehicle, which made it seem like he had been released.
SaharaReporters reported that some friends of Naira Marley were spotted at the court talking to journalists to write their story of the arraignment in favor of the musician.
The Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos on Monday ordered that Nigeria singer be remanded in prison until May 30th when the hearing of his bail application will take place.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo presided over the arraignment.
Naira Marley was charged to court at the behest of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on 11 count charge bordering on cybercrime, possession of counterfeit cards and conspiracy to obtain gain.
