Nigerian musician, Naira Marley , who was arrested and detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been remanded in the prison custody by Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos.
Blukel News understands that the judge made the remand order on Monday morning shortly after the musician was arraigned before him on 11 counts, bordering on credit card fraud.
Naira Marley had pleaded not guilty to the cyber fraud charges pressed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The judge adjourned till May 30 to take the bail application filed by the defense counsel, Taiwo Oreagba, on behalf of his client.
