Naira Marley alleged fraud
On Wednesday, a Federal High Court in Lagos, Nigeria admitted more evidence in the ongoing trial of the Nigerian music star, Naira Marley.
In May 2019, reports shows how Naira Marley, Zlatan, and four others were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In connection with an alleged case of internet fraud and money laundering, they were arrested. An early morning raid followed their arrest at 9 Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
The EFCC alleged that Nicole Louise Malyon and Timea Fedorne Tatar were named after some of the credit cards discovered at his residence.
EFCC stated that the offenses contravene the Cyber Crimes Act and the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act.
In its ruling, the judge, Nicolas Oweibo, admitted that the compact disc containing the telephone analysis of Naira Marley offered in evidence by the second prosecution witness, Anosike Augustine, had previously been admitted in evidence.
He overruled the objection to Olalekan Ojo SAN’s counsel for the singer and admitted the C.D in evidence marked with exhibit F.
‘With respect to the consensus of all sides and the basis of objection, I deem the C.D to be admissible in the light of the facts of the case and the testimony of other witnesses to the prosecution.’
It is also accepted in fact and marked as Exhibit F,” said Mr Oweibo.
As the defense lawyer, Olalekan Ojo, was not in court and had requested adjournment, the trial of the case did not continue.
