It’s no rumor.
Afeez Fashola A.K.A Naira Marley has been released on a two million Naira bail.
The “Issa Goal” crooner was arrested some weeks ago after his public support of Internet fraudsters popularly known as Yahoo Boys.
And even going ahead to release a song titled “Am I a yahoo boy”
He was arrested alongside Zlatan Ibile, Rahman Jago, Guccy Branch but while the others were released.
Fashola wasn’t released.
He was charged with credit card fraud and as the charge sheet reads;
“That you, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Raze (still at large), on or about the 11th day of December 2018, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, conspired amongst yourselves to use Access card 42658840359191132 issued to persons other than you in a bid to obtain gain and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27(1)(b) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015 and punishable under Section 33(2) of the Same Act.
“That you, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Raze (still at large), on or about the 10th day of May 2019, within the jurisdiction of this honorable court, with intent to defraud possessed, counterfeit card 4921819410257431 issued to Timea Fedorne Tatar and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 33(9) of Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015.”
This simply means that it might not be over just yet.
Naira Marley might still be looking at 5 years in jail or a fine of not more than N5,000,000.00 and forfeiture of the advantage or value derived from his act.
What do you think of his release and its effects on Young Nigerians
