Alleged Money Laundering: Naira Marley, others will be arraigned soon – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has announced its decision to arraign musician, Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, anytime from now.

The singer was arrested last Friday by the anti-graft agency in connection with alleged Internet fraud and money laundering.

The EFCC’s Acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, in an interview with The PUNCH, confirmed that the commission had received the order to detain Naira Marley.

Asked how long the musician would be detained, Orilade simply said, “He will be charged to court. As soon as we have a clear date, I will let you know.”

However, a source at the magistrate court told The Punch that an order to keep a suspect in custody could take either seven, 10 or 14 days.

The EFCC had arrested the singer based on “intelligence report” along with another artiste, Temidayo Omoniyi (aka Zlatan), and three other suspects, Tiamiu Abdulrahman, Adewunmi Adeyanju and Musa Abubakar, following an early morning raid at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
