Naira Marley To Resume Trial Next Month In Court, To Face 7 Years In Jail If Found Guilty
Naira Marley’s fraud trial with the Economic Financial & Crimes Commision would resume next month.
The singer was released on the 14th of June, 2019, exactly 14 days after he was granted bail by the Ikoyi High court, after being arrested by the EFCC alongside Zlatan and three other guys in connection with cyber crime. The trial however resumes in a month time as Naira Marley needs to answer to all charges levelled against him by the anti-graft commission.
EFCC levelled an 11-count charge against Naira Marley. The alleged crimes were in contravention of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act and the Cyber Crimes Act, which the artiste risks seven years in jail if found guilty. The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos State High Court. 10 days after his arrest, Naira Marley was arraigned before Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos.
If found guilty of the charges levelled against him, Naira Marley risks going to jail for seven years.
