Fraud: EFCC Gives Update On Naira Marley’s Release

The Economic Financial Crimes Commision (EFCC) has reacted to the release of budding rapper, Zlatan Ibile and three others, while Naira Marley remains in custody.

The Anti-graft agency spokesman, Tony Orilade confirmed to PremiumTimes that three suspects were released on administrative bail, while the fourth suspect, Naira Marley still remains in custody.

“There is overwhelming evidence against Naira Marley; so we can’t afford to release him on administrative bail like Zlatan and the three others.

“That Zlatan has been released does not mean they have been discharged and acquitted. 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.”

It has also been reported that Davido facilitated Zlatan’s release by allegedly hiring a Senior Advocate of Nigeria who helped in securing the bail of the singer.

The EFCC, however, said such report is not true.

Zlatan was released alongside his crew members, Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.

Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael (aka Zlatan), launched his career in 2017. He is best known for his hit song, “My Body” and the “Shaku Shaku” dance step. He became famous in January 2019, after he featured on Davido’s song titled ‘bum bum’.

Naira Marley, on the other hand, is controversial for repeatedly praising internet fraudsters, popularly called Yahoo boys, in his songs and on social media.

The EFCC last year launched Operation Cyber Storm to curb the activities of internet fraudsters in which over 150 suspects have been reportedly arrested across the country.
