The singer's trial resumed on Friday at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) presented more evidence against the music star.

 

It appears that there is some more trouble for Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley as the EFCC presents more evidence against him in court.

The singer's trial resumed on Friday at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) presented more evidence against the music star.

Recall that Naira Marley is standing trial on 11-count charge bordering on credit card fraud.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo dismissed his objection to the forensic evidence earlier presented.

At the resumed hearing, the prosecuting witness Dein Whyte, an EFCC operative, continued his presentation.

At the sitting on June 9, 2022, the defence counsel, Olalekan Ojo objected to the witness’s opinion on the forensic evidence linking the artiste.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) argued that only the court could make pronouncements on the defendant’s culpability, not an investigator.

Dismissing the objection, Justice Oweibo said an investigator must be able to link the defendant to the commission of the crime.

“It is the duty of the law enforcement agency or police, to charge a person to court to investigate if the defendant committed the crime or not.

“The prosecutor must have made up his mind as to the involvement of the defendant before bringing the case to court”, the judge ruled.
