A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has adjourned the continuation of trial of Nigerian singer Azeez Fashola, a.k.a Naira Marley, charged with cybercrime until November 13 and 30.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo adjourned the case on Monday following the absence of Naira Marley from court.
Newsextra24 reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting Naira Marley on charges bordering on cyber crime.
The Commission preferred the charges on May 14, 2019, but court granted him bail in the sum of N2 million, with two sureties in like sum.
The EFCC alleged that Naira Marley and his accomplices conspired to use different Access Bank ATM cards to defraud their victims.
Trial has since commenced in the case and is still ongoing.
Newsextra24 reported that the police in Lagos had detained Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry, in connection with the death of Nigerian artiste, Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
However, when the case was called on Monday, Mr Olalekan Ojo (SAN) informed the court that Naira Marley was still clearly absent from his trial, inspite of the court’s order for his production.
In his response, the prosecutor told the court that although she had prayed the court for a production warrant of the defendant, he was still absent.
The court consequently adjourned the case until Nov. 13 and 30 for continuation of trial
