Naira Marley, according to his management, is not the owner of the laptop found with him by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The singer was arrested in the early hours of May 10, 2019, for issues bordering on advance fee fraud and internet related crimes.
He was arrested alongside singer Zlatan, and a few others. Zlatan who was arrested alongside Naira Marley finally got his freedom, leaving behind his fellow rapper in custody.
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.
Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said Naira Marley cannot be released because of ‘overwhelming evidence’ against him.
“There is overwhelming evidence against Naira Marley; so we can’t afford to release him on administrative bail like Zlatan and the three others,” EFCC spokesman Tony Orilade said.
“Naira Marley is still in our custody and will be charged to court soon and we will make the charges known in an official statement soon.
