The credit card fraud trial of popular musician, Afeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has been adjourned for continuation till October 5, 2021 by the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Naira Marley was arraigned sometime in 2019 on an 11-count charge of credit card fraud preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).
He pleaded not guilty to the charge, thereby leading to his trial.
Since the commencement of the trial, the prosecution had called two witnesses, Nuru Buhari Dalhatu and Augustine Anosike, both forensic experts with the EFCC, who revealed to the court how the defendant frequently visited sites where stolen credit cards were sold to interested fraudsters as well as other shocking evidence recovered from the defendant’s mobile device.
At the resumed sitting, the prosecution counsel, Bilkisu Buhari, informed the court that the matter was slated for cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, PW2, Anosike, and also urged the court to call on the witness for the continuation of the hearing.
However, counsel to the defendants, Akinwale Kola-Taiwo, asked the court for a short date on the grounds that “the matter is for mention today and not continuation as disclosed by the prosecution.”
Consequently, Justice Nicholas Oweibo granted the prayer of the defence and adjourned the matter till October 5, 6 and 7 for the continuation of trial.
