Naira Marley set to be arraigned on Monday by EFCC


Troubled singer Naira Marley whose real name is Azeez Fashola, will be taken to court on Monday to face up to 11 charges bordering on fraud against him for credit card fraud.

The musician might risk spending about seven years in prison if found guilty, 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 forfeiture of the advantage or value derived from his act.

In the charge sheet released by EFCC, it was revealed that the musician signed and obtained the original copy ahead of his arraignment.

Naira Marley was arrested last

Friday along with four others including his friend and singer, Zlatan Ibile who has since been released on administrative bail.
