The economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC) has revealed they would be unable to release Nigerian singer, Afeez Fashola also known as Naria Marley, due to the overwhelming evidence against him.
However, the anti-graft agency has released Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael widely known as Zlatan.
Zlatan was released alongside his crew members, Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.
When Premium Times contacted the agency, its spokesperson, Tony Orilade, confirmed that the suspects were released on bail.
“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,” he said.
Rumours had it that DMW boss, Davido, helped in facilitating the release of Zlatan by hiring a Senior Advocate of Nigeria. EFCC debunked the claims.
Naira Marley was arrested in the early hours of Friday for alleged cyber crimes also known as “Yahoo Yahoo”.
Naira Marley has been praising internet fraudsters for a while now. This has cause squabbles between himself, Simi and music vetran, Ruggedman.
