Naira Marley still in jail, not granted bail - UPDATE kikiotolu

Nigerian singer, Naira Marley is still in jail and has not been released on bail by the EFCC, according to Sahara reporters.

Instablog9ja earlier today claimed that the singer has been released on bail, though this has been refuted by a top source in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

A new video shared on Instagram by Instablog9ja showed the singer chilling with family in a house. Watch the video below;

Contrary to the above video circulating online which show Azeez Fashola better known as Naira Marley going into a private car and captions suggesting that he has been released, SaharaReporters confirmed that he is to be remanded in prison.

A top source in the EFCC who spoke to news agency said the video was mere propaganda by friends of the musician who are desperate to launder his image.

As we earlier reported, the singer today appeared in an Ikoyi court after he was arraigned by the EFCC.

He was arraigned by the EFCC at Federal High Court in Ikoyi on 11 charges, bordering on alleged credit card fraud.

We would wait to see how it all turns out.
