Why Naira Marley is still in custody

Naira Marley was granted bail but still remains in custody

Naira Marley’s managers say the singer is still in custody as they await the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to verify those who have come forward as his sureties.

A Lagos court granted the singer bail some weeks ago.

EFCC’s spokesman, Tony Orilade, said Naira Marley “was to be detained in Prison custody pending the fulfillment of the conditions.”

The EFCC will only meet with the defendant in court for his trial at the next adjourned date,” Orilade added.

This is coming on the heels of the outspoken journalist, Kemi Olunloyo giving reasons why the singer is still in custody despite his bail granted by a court. She had said last week,

Naira Marley was arrested and charged to court on allegations of internet fraud and his arrest came on the heels of his vocal support for internet fraudsters popularly known as yahoo boys.
