The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos State, will on Tuesday, October 22nd, begin the trial of popular Nigerian Music Artiste, Azeez Fashola popularly known by his stage name Naira Marley.
Eye witness reported that the trial is not unconnected to the fraud charge the Nigerian artiste is facing.
The trial of Naira Marley comes as a follow-up to the trial he’s facing with the Economic financial and crime commission (EFCC) that had preferred an 11-count charge against the musician bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit cards, and fraud.
Also mentioned in the charge is one Yad Isril, who is said to still be at large.
Recall that the “Am I a Yahoo Boy” crooner was arraigned on May 20 before Justice Nicholas Oweibo but denied the charges. Following a bail application by defence counsel, Mr. Olalekan Ojo, (SAN), the court had granted Fashola bail in the sum of N2 million with sureties in like sum.
However, the trial of Naira Marley which was earlier fixed for Monday has now been shifted to Tuesday, October 22.
