Embattled rapper Afeez Fashola aka Naira Marley is still in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) despite the release of his colleague Zlatan Ibile.
After spending five days in the custody of the EFCC, Zlatan Ibile was released late on Tuesday night alongside his personal assistant, Rahman Jago and one other suspect.
However, Naira Marley was still held back by the EFCC with reports revealing that he was not released due to certain incriminating items found on his phone and laptop.
Recall that the EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, in an earlier statement issued last Friday said the suspects were picked up in “connection with alleged case of internet fraud and money laundering.
He also added that the anti-graft agency plans to use information volunteered by the suspects to charge them to court for their involvement in advance fee fraud.
The arrest and interrogation of Naira Marley follows his open endorsement of cybercrime on social media and a song he did with Zlatan Ibile titled Am I a Yahoo boy which claims Yahoo Yahoo is pay back time for our colonial masters for engaging in transatlantic slave trade.
