Naira Marley set to appear in court as EFCC returns car, phone belonging to Zlatan Ibile

Embattled rapper Azeez Fashola, better known in music circles as Naira Marley will be paraded in court tomorrow, Monday, over charges of advance fee fraud known as Yahoo Yahoo in local parlance.

The rapper will have his day in court after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) preferred 11 charges bordering on fraud against the burgeoning rapper for alleged credit card fraud.

If found guilty by the anti-graft agency, the rapper risks a seven-year jail term according to Section 33 (2) of the Nigerian law which states that: “Any person who uses: a counterfeit access device; an unauthorised access device; an access device issued to another person; resulting in a loss or gain commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not more than seven years or a fine of not more than N5,000,000.00 and forfeiture of the advantage or value derived from his act.”

Meanwhile, the EFCC has returned a phone and a car belonging to
Zlatan Ibile four days after he was released from the custody of the EFCC, alongside his personal assistant, Rahman Jago and one other suspect.

Recall that Zlatan’s car and some of his personal belongings were confiscated by the anti-graft agency and were not released to him when his bail was secured days ago.

The development was confirmed by a source within Zlatan’s management team who also noted that all Zlatan’s possessions in the custody of the EFCC, have been released to him.

“We all know that Zlatan Ibile was detained for investigations and he has regained his freedom. His phones and car were not released to him when he was bailed. However, all his possessions in the custody of the EFCC, have been released to him,” the source revealed.
