Naira Marley’s fraud case gets three months adjournment

0 138

The alleged fraud case instituted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against Naira Marley has been adjourned to October for continuation.

Naira Marley, whose real name is Afeez Adeshina Fashola, was arrested by the EFCC in 2019 for alleged internet fraud.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo of a Federal High Court in Lagos adjourned till October 5, due to the defence counsel’s, request for a short date for continuation of the trial.

The defence counsel, Akinwale Kola-Taiwo had requested for the adjournment due to the request by the counsel to the EFCC, Bilikisu Buhari, that witness should be call up for continuation of the hearing.

The counsel to the EFCC had informed the judge that the matter was slated for cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, Anosike, but Kola-Taiwo, countered that “the matter is for mention today and not continuation as disclosed by the prosecution.”

Granting his prayer, Justice Oweibo adjourned the case till October 5, 6 and 7 for continuation of trial.

The long adjournment is in view of the court’s annual vacation, which begins on July 26 and ends on September 17.
