Internet Fraud: Court Awards Production Warrant against Naira Marley

The Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Friday, October 5, 2023, issued a production warrant against Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley.

 

This was contained in a press statement issued by the Acting Head, Media and Publicity of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Dele Oyewale.

 

Recall that Naira Marley is being prosecuted by the EFCC, on 11-count charges bordering on conspiracy and credit card fraud.

 

At the resumed sitting on Friday, counsel to the defendant, Olalekan Ojo, SAN informed the court that the defendant was absent from court owing to his being detained by the Police for interrogation in respect of the murder of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad and prayed the court for an adjournment of the trial.

The presiding judge, Justice Nicholas Oweibo, however, granted the prayers of the prosecution counsel and issued a production warrant against the defendant.
