Why We Arrested Naira Marley- EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission-EFCC has confirmed the arrest of popular singer, Afeez Fashola, otherwise known as Naira Marley, and others in relation to alleged advance fee scam and related cyber crimes, Premium Times reports.

This follows the earlier report that the musician was arrested by the EFCC in Lagos.

The acting EFCC spokesperson, Mr Tony Orilade, in an interview said,

“Yes, he is with us. He’s not the only person; he had some other persons also arrested alongside (him).

“They were arrested in relation to advance fee fraud — Internet-related cases and all of that. Give me a little time and I will get you the details.”

A video featuring Ruggedman has gone viral this week in which the rapper called out Naira Marley for advocating Internet fraud. The artiste noted that the promotion of such cyber crimes impacted negatively on Nigerians abroad.

However, Naira Marley, whose recent song is titled ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy,’ featuring Zlatan Ibile responded by mocking Ruggedman in an Instagram video and defended his artistic choices.
