The fast-rising singer Naira Marley is currently being questioned at the Lagos office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The musician whose real name is Afeez Fashola was arrested with four others in relation to alleged advance fee scam and related cyber crimes.
Naira Marley, known for his single Issa Goal, recently came under fire by renowned rapper, Ruggedman, for promoting Internet fraud in his music.
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.”
The EFCC added in a series of tweets later on Friday, “Intelligence report had also linked them to cybercrime offence. They were arrested along with: Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.
“Their arrest followed an early morning raid on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.”
