Problem rises as EFCC Slams Naira Marley with 11 (eleven) different Charges

Singer Azeez Fashola, commonly known as Naira Marley who was arrested on Friday, May 10, has taken yet a new twist as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), placed an 11-count charge against him.

Rocklite understands that EFCC slammed Naira Marley with these charges subsequent to his arrest alongside Zlatan Ibile and three others.

Naira Marley was arrested at the dawn of his birthday, May 10th.

Naira Marley was still detained while the Nigeria’s anti-graft agency released Zlatan and other three.

According to report Naira Marley was still held back in custody after the EFCC disclosed some incriminating materials on his phone and laptop.

With this revelation, the musician productively risks seven years in jail if convicted, as Section 33 (2) which he was accused of breaching, reads: “Any person who uses: a counterfeit access device; an unauthorised access device; an access device issued to another person; resulting in a loss or gain commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not more than seven years or a fine of not more than N5,000,000.00 and penalty of the advantage or value derived from his act.”

The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos State High Court.

Some of the credit cards, according to the EFCC, bore the names- Malyon, Nicole Louise and Timea Fedorne Tatar.

The charges read,

“That you, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Raze (still at large), on or about the 11th day of December 2018, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, conspired amongst yourselves to use access card 42658840359191132 issued to persons other than you in a bid to obtain gain and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27(1)(b) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015 and punishable under Section 33(2) of the Same Act.

“That you, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Raze (still at large), on or about the 10th day of May 2019, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, with intent to defraud possessed counterfeit card 4921819410257431 issued to Timea FedorneTatar and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 33(9) of Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015.”
