The trial of Nigerian singer Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, who is facing cybercrime charges, has been adjourned by a Federal High Court in Lagos.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo postponed the proceedings until November 13 and 30 due to the defendant’s absence.
Naira Marley, who was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on charges related to cybercrime, was granted bail in May 2019.
The trial had commenced, and on October 6, a production warrant was issued for the defendant, following his failure to appear in court.
The EFCC alleges that Naira Marley and his accomplices used ATM cards to defraud victims, among other offenses, which contravene the Cybercrime (Prohibition) Prevention Act, 2015.
