Second EFCC Witness Testifies Against Naira Marley In Cyber Fraud Case



A second prosecution witness has testified against popular musician, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley, in his trial on 11 counts of conspiracy, possession of counterfeit cards and fraud.

In the trial which continued on Thursday, the second prosecution witness, Anosike Augustine, a mobile forensic expert with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) told Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos how he analysed the contents of an iPhone 11 allegedly retrieved from Naira Marley during investigation.

Anosike said after extracting and analysing the data on the phone, he produced a report of his findings.

This was tendered by EFCC subsequently in evidence which was said to be over 30 pages long.

Counsel to Naira Marley, Olalekan Ojo, however, objected to the tendering of the document, arguing that it was not part of the documents front-loaded to the defence team and he was unaware of its contents.

Following the EFCC’s insistence that the document had been front-loaded, Justice Oweibo adjourned until Friday to allow the parties sort out and reconcile whether the report was front-loaded or not.
