EFCC presents more evidence against Naira Marley

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has presented more evidence against Azeez Fashola better known as Naira Marley over alleged Cyber Fraud.

Naira Marley is standing trial on an 11-count charge bordering on credit card fraud brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

His hearing continued on Friday before Justice I. Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos.

The prosecuting witness, Dein Whyte, an operative of the EFCC continued his evidence even as the court dismissed the defendant’s objection to the forensic evidence earlier presented by the witness.

At the resumed trial today, Justice Oweibo delivered a short ruling in which he dismissed the defence’s objection.

“It is the duty of the law enforcement agency or Police, charging a person to court to investigate if the defendant committed the crime or not. The investigator must be able to link the defendant to the commission of the crime.

“The prosecutor must have made up his mind as to the involvement of the defendant before bringing the case to court. I do not agree that the prosecution has declared the defendant guilty”, the Judge ruled.

 Justice Oweibo adjourned the matter till September 26 & 30, 2022.
