According to reports, Marley is still in the EFCC custody due to the level on incriminating things found on his laptop. However, the singer's management has put out a statement claiming the laptop found on the singer belongs to someone else.
In the statement, it was claimed that the singer borrowed the laptop to enable him upload music, record videos and work while he is in Nigeria.
The singer was recently in the news for his comments endorsing cyber crime popularly called Yahoo Yahoo and it is no wonder he became a person of interest to the EFCC.
The Issa Goal singer had somewhat become an advocate for cyber crime as he even bashed other celebs who tried to go against his views.
Just recently, Legit.ng reported that veteran rapper, Ruggedman, explained that he has no hands in Naira Marley's arrest.
In a recent statement released by the top music act, he has stated that even though he openly expressed his satisfaction about the arrest, he completely had nothing to do with it.
Ruggedman said he does not have any personal relationship with Naira Marley and all he did was to simply caution him against his public support of what has been considered as a crime by the general majority.
