Court Resumes Naira Marley’s Trial 

Adewale Ayanbunmi

A Federal High Court in Lagos will on Tuesday, October 22, begin the trial of popular Nigerian Musician, Azeez Fashola popularly known by his stage name as Naira Marley.

Melody Blog understands that the trial is not unconnected to the fraud charge the Nigerian artiste is facing.

The trial of Naira Marley comes as a follow-up to the trial he’s facing with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that had preferred an 11-count charge against the musician bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit cards, and fraud.

Also mentioned in the charge is one Yad Isril, who is said to still be at large.

Recall that the “Am I a Yahoo Boy” crooner was arraigned on May 20 before Justice Nicholas Oweibo but denied the charges. Following a bail application by defence counsel, Mr. Olalekan Ojo, (SAN), the court had granted Fashola bail in the sum of N2 million with sureties in like sum.

However, the trial of Naira Marley which was earlier fixed for Monday has now been shifted to Tuesday, October 22.

    Like seriously… If he has done wrong or commited a crime, it is better he face his punishment. However, I pray the court gives him a fair judgement.

    If he is found guilty of the charges against him, then he should be ready to face the law. Life is gradual you don’t rush into it else you regret it. We should learn to be contented for what we have.

    The federal high court of Nigera should allow the musician rest and carry out his own part very much in advance

  11. This shit is getting too serious for this guy. 11 count? for what reason? Is this still about the songs or something else?

  12. Musa Abiodun

    Comment:11 charges for what crimes exactly.is singing now a crime in this country?,EFCC should go and catch the real criminals out there and stop harrasing the youth that only trying to get their daily bread through singing.

  13. If really he is guilty let he face the law and if not he should be let go. In Nigeria anything can happen I just hope the judge will judge with fairness and not compromise his freedom.

  14. Oluwatobiloba Okusaga
