[Image: 5ce4e4d60dc8f.jpeg]
Actress Georgina Onuoha has reacted to Monday May 20th arraignment of singer, Naira Marley.
In a post she shared on Instagram, Georgina stressed that she does not in anyway condone fraud but however appealed to the court to temper justice with mercy.
She added that she wishes the EFCC would arrest politicians that have been proven to embezzle the National treasury same way they arrested Naira Marley. Read her post below
Quote:I don’t know this young man. 
I believe everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
I condemn any form of crime. 
I condemn cyber crimes 
My family have been victims of frauds and the pain caused is always palpable.
That being said,  I hope our young men and women will begin to do the needful by speaking up and standing up to their elected officials and demand better governance and accountability so we can eradicate this pandemic “ scam” ravaging our society and image locally and internationally.
Please guys, the time and talent wasted in cybercrime and other forms of crime can be used well.
Nigerian youths deserve better from their government. What happened in Sudan and Arab spring will come to our shores if our elected officials and politicians don’t begin to address the hunger, poverty and joblessness amongst Nigerian youths.
I don’t know this young and I pray for him that they tamper justice with mercy.
@officialefcc , I will be more than glad if you start arresting our politicians who are looting our National treasury this way.
I hope you show this same show of force to the cabals causing untold hardship on the Nigerian citizenry.
I hope you hold every criminal in Nigeria accountable like this.
If you use this amount of security and force on this young man according to your policy and procedures, I hope every politician and public office holders who steal from our treasury will be treated like this , so that equal justice will be served under the law.
Our society is so corrupt and sadly, the legal system works differently depending on your social political status.

#NairaMarley: Stop justifying fraud and cyber-crime- actress Foluke Daramola tells Nigerians (video)

[Image: 5ce5034e1d09e.jpeg]

Following the arrest and arraignment of singer, Naira Marley on allegations of fraud and cybercrime, actress Foluke Daramola has appealed to Nigerians to desist from justifying the alleged crime committed by the singer.
In a video she posted on her Instagram page this morning, Foluke said the fact that there is no money in circulation does not in anyway justify anyone commiting crime just to make money. According to her 
Quote:''Sometimes I wonder how our people think. One thing I want us to know is that two wrongs don't make a right. Just because there is no money in the country, there is no work does not justify corruption, does not justify evil. Because our politicians are doing it does not make it right for us to do it. It is really sad when we try to paint bad as good. I don;t want to mention names and I am not going to tag anybody. We should under stand the implications, the depth of what we do''.

Why EFCC Is Prosecuting Naira Marley – Magu

Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Wednesday spoke on prosecution of popular musician, Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley.

A statement by EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, quoted Magu as saying Naira Marley was picked up over internet fraud charges and not because he is a musician.

He said: “Let me use this opportunity to emphasize that we have no issues with any member of this very important sector of the country.

“I have said it in the past and I will also like to restate, that the EFCC does not go after any innocent person. Our mandate is to rid Nigeria of any form of economic and financial crimes, and internet fraud is not excluded.

“There is always intelligence report that our officers get and investigate before effecting a warrant of arrest, and we don’t arrest innocent people”.

He noted that the concern for the increasing cases of internet fraud, prompted him early in the year, to constitute a Task Team given the task to stem the tide of internet fraud in the country.

“This Task Team has since swung into action, and the outcome of what you have is the increasing cases and report of EFCC operatives rounding up internet fraudsters across the country,” he added.

He, however, noted with concern that “I don’t like arresting them, but what can we do, we have to do our job.

“While I restate our commitment to continue the intensity of rounding up internet fraudsters, I strongly urge you all to join hands with the EFCC to promote the culture and gospel of hard work with dignity”.

Finally, Simi breaks her silence on Naira Marley's arrest

[Image: 5ce654aa53b67.JPG]

Singer, Simi has finally spoken about Naira Marley's arrest.
Naira Marley's road to detention can easily be traced to his beef with Simi a few weeks back after she condemned internet fraud and anyone supporting it. Naira Marley rose in defense of 'Yahoo Yahoo' which ultimately led him to record the 'Am I a Yahoo Boy' song before he got arrested.
Last night, Simi gave her followers a chance to ask her some questions on Instagram and a particular user asked if she is happy with what Naira is going through and she replied with a blatant “no.”
The user wrote; “You happy Naira Marley is arrested yeah?”. And Simi replied with a certain degree of conviction; “No.”

Singer Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, says he has two wives and four children, who are all British citizens.

He also said he is not a criminal and has no idea what the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission found on his laptop.

Naira Marley, who claimed to be 28-years old, said apart from storing his songs and music videos, he had never done anything illegal with his laptop.

The artiste said this in his statement on oath which he made while in EFCC custody, which was obtained by The Punch.

The artiste, who identified himself as a Swedish Yoruba man, wrote,

My name is Azeez Fashola.

“I am married to two wives and I have four kids. They are all British citizens staying in the United Kingdom.

“I studied in the United Kingdom, started studying at Porlock Hall, then I moved to Walworth School where I received my GCSE.

“My results for my GCSE are English ©, Maths (B) and Science ©.

“I left Walworth School with my qualification and went further to study at Peckham Academy, where I got distinction in Business.

“Then, I went further to study at Crossways College where I finished my Business Law; but I had kids at that time, so I took a break and started making music till date.”

According to Naira Marley, he did not own a laptop but was given one to use temporarily to upload videos on YouTube.

He said,

“I started making music in 2014 individually (sic), but now I’m signed to Marathon, a United Kingdom-based record label.

“I had a deal with Coca-Cola for my song, Issa Goal, in which I featured Olamide and Lil Kesh.

“I also had deals with Nike to participate in the Nigerian sportswear (sic).

“I’m in possession of a MacBook laptop, which I borrowed from a friend named Yad Isril in England, because while returning to Nigeria, I knew I was going to need a laptop to upload my music videos on YouTube and also to keep my exclusive songs.”

Naira Marley added,

“I’m in possession of the laptop but I have no idea what is on it apart from my music videos.

According to the artiste, the said laptop had no password and could be accessed by anyone.

He claimed to have met Isril in a secondary school in England.

He owns the butcher’s and an electronics shop in England. He is a British citizen, though his family is from Iraq.

“I don’t have a personal laptop at the moment because I don’t need it.

Naira Marley Granted Bail After 10 Days In Custody

The Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi has granted singer Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley bail.

At the resumed bail application, his lead defense counsel Olalekan Ojo for the singer apologized for his absence at the initial arraignment on May 20 due to heavy down poor.

Ojo urged the court to accept the bail application Prima Facie based on the presumption of his innocence in accordance with Section 162 (1)

The defense also pleaded that a liberal approach is taken in hearing the bail application.

The prosecution counsel, led by Rotimi Oyedepo, however, argued that it is not the temporary release of the singer that mattered but the final judgment.

He, therefore, urged the court to grant accelerated hearing rather than bail.

He added that since the lawyer of the defendant said the defendant is a celebrity, then his actions and inactions have a multiplier effect on youths in the entire federation.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo who presided over the bail hearing after listening to the defense and prosecution arguments granted the singer bail to the sum of two million naira, two sureties.

The trial has been adjourned to 22, 23 and 24 of October for accelerated hearing.

Naira Marley's management reacts to reports the singer is yet to find someone to stand surety for his bail

[Image: 5cf8e34fb2f26.jpeg]

The management of embattled singer, Afeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, has reacted to allegations that the singer who was granted bail by a Lagos court on May 30th, is yet to be released from prison because no one wants to stand as surety for him. 
Reacting to the allegation, his management in a post shared on his Instastories this morning, said there are sureties already on ground to sign his bail but the delay in releasing the singer is because the antigraft agency, EFCC, needs to verify the information provided by the sureties and this takes time. 
Naira Marley was arrested on May 10th, his birthday. He was charged to court on 11-counts of fraud and internet scam.
After spending 20 days in EFCC custody, he was granted bail  in the sum of 2 Million Naira with sureties with landed property in Lagos.
