The Lagos Federal High Court has on Monday adjourned the trial of a Nigerian singer Azeez Fashola who is also known as Naira Marley, he was recently accused of cybercrime, and the case has been put on hold till November 13th and 30th, 2023.
The singer is facing prosecution of 11-count charges by the Economic and Finacial Crimes Commission (EFCC), related to conspiracy and credit card fraud.
In the previous court session, Naira Marley’s lawyer, Olalekan Ojo, revealed that the artist was conspicuously absent in court due to his detainment by the police, allegedly in connection with the unfortunate demise of Mohbad.
Ojo then prayed the court for an adjournment of the trial.
However, Bilkisu Buhari, the prosecution counsel, told the court to issue a production warrant against Naira Marley to ensure his presence on the next adjourned date.
