By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has testified against Nigerian music star Naira Marley in connection with alleged Internet fraud accusations.
The EFCC arrested Naira Marley in 2019 for his alleged involvement in a credit card scam.
A prosecution witness, Anosike Augustine, an EFCC mobile forensic expert, testified against the singer on Tuesday, October 26, 2021.
According to Anosike, approximately 2,410 brief messages were analyzed from the defendant’s iPhone, and various credit card details were recovered from the iPhone.
The Apple iPhone, according to the witness, is a sophisticated device capable of storing a significant number of information, and it is the sim card that essentially identifies users of programs such as WhatsApp.
The witness stated that 977 SMS communications and 1,433 chat messages were detected in the witness’ iPhone, as well as seven pending status update messages.
The EFCC detained Naira Marley in May 2019, along with men now named as rapper, Zlatan Ibile, Rahman Jago, Guccy Branch, and another unknown person.
The early stages of his trial were among the most widely broadcast events in the country.
