Rapper Azeez Fashola better known as Naira Marley has not been let off from his ongoing internet fraud case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The commission in a fresh update shared on their official Instagram page announced that Justice I. Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, adjourned the trial of the Soapy crooner till October 5.
Recall that in May 2019, Legit.ng reported that the indigenous rap star made an appearance at court where he pleaded not guilty to the 11-count charge of credit card fraud preferred against him by the anti-graft agency.
Still reporting on the matter, the EFCC via its media and publicity department disclosed that the prosecution counsel, Bilkisu Buhari, stated that the matter was slated for cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, PW2, Anosike. She also urged the court to call on the witness for the continuation of the hearing.
However, the rapper’s counsel, Akinwale Kola-Taiwo urged the court for a short date since the matter is only for mention and not the continuation of the trial.
