Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is set to charge Nigerian Musician, Naira Marley, Zlatan Ibile and two others to court for their alleged links to cybercrime.
An insider source at the EFCC disclosed that the anti-graft agency is planning to use information volunteered by the arrested gang to charge them to court.
NigerianEye had earlier reported that Afeez Fashola (aka Naira Marley) and Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael (aka Zlatan) were arrested in connection with advance fee fraud on Friday morning.
Tony Orilade, EFCC’s head of media and publicity said their arrest followed an early morning raid at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
The Musicians are reportedly still in custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC.
Meanwhile, following his arrest, Naira Marley in a video which surfaced online on Saturday, May 11, 2019, has something to tell his fans about his music and how many times he’s been arrested.
He said, “Lemme tell you, you don’t nothing about me, I have been arrested 124 times in England and I am not doing any other type of music, No slow songs, no love songs, just street music.”
You’ll recall that Naira Marley broke the Internet a few weeks ago when he made comments suggestive of his sympathy towards Internet fraudsters popularly known as ‘Yahoo Yahoo Boys.’
