Fast-rising singer, Naira Marley, was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) on May 10, 2019, alongside others for alleged involvement in advance fee fraud and cybercrime related issues.
After his arrest, fans of the singer set social media buzzing with their clamour for his release. The singer was eventually taken away from EFCC detention to Ikoyi prison.
After spending 10 days in prison, he was granted bail by the court on May 20, 2019, to the joy of his fans now known as Marlians.
The singer was granted bail in the sum of N2 million with landed properties in Lagos as sureties. The presiding judge at the Federal High Court sitting, Justice Nicholas Onweibo, said that the first surety must be a civil servant not below the grade 10 level while the second surety must have a landed property in a jurisdiction approved by the court.
Well, Naira Marley is still in prison custody several weeks after being granted bail by the court. A Twitter user identified as @Mayorwiz5 has explained why the singer is not yet free.
According to him, Marlians who have parents as level 10 officers should stand in as surety for the singer’s bail. See his tweet below:
As expected, several Marlians were not impressed with Mayor's tweet and they took to bashing him. See some comments below:

Just recently, Legit.ng reported that Naira Marley's Twitter account has been suspended.
Upon checking his Twitter page, it was discovered that all his posts have been deleted and an instruction concerning his suspension has been put up rather.
It would seem the controversy stirred up by the singer has weighed too much on the mini-blogging platform. Hence, this has caused the social media organisation to suspend the singer's account.
