Things don’t seem to be getting any better for Naira Marley, as GTB and Mastercard officials are set to testify against him.
According to court documents obtained by The PUNCH, the EFCC has listed nine witnesses to testify against the artiste at Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley trial.
The witnesses would give evidence of their investigation, tender exhibits and reveal their findings to the court.
This might be normal, but it smells like trouble for Naira Marley since representatives of Mastercard, Visa Inc and Guaranty Trust Bank, are expected to tender relevant card and account details of the defendant to the court.
As we all know, the EFCC filed 11 charges against Naira Marley bordering on alleged cybercrime and identity theft.
The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos State High Court.
Ten days after his arrest, Naira Marley was arraigned before Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Justice Oweibo ordered that the artiste be remanded in custody until May 30 to take the bail application filed by the defendant’s counsel, Mrs Taiwo Oreagba.
He was subsequently granted bail to the tune of N2m.
