The Federal High Court Ikoyi, Lagos State has adjourned till October 5, 2021, for the continuation of the trial of popular Nigerian musician, Afeez Adeshina Fashola, otherwise known as Naira Marley, who is facing trial on an 11-count charge of credit card fraud brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Naira Marley debunked all the charges levelled against him when he was arraigned in 2019.

The prosecution had presented two witnesses, Nuru Buhari Dalhatu and Augustine Anosike, both forensic experts with the EFCC, since the commencement of the trial.

The witnesses told the court how Naira Marley had allegedly frequently visited sites where stolen credit cards were traded to interested scammers, as well as other shocking evidence recovered from the defendant’s mobile device.

Bilkisu Buhari, counsel to the prosecution at the hearing on Monday, told the court that the matter was slated for cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, PW2, Anosike, and urged the court to call on the witness for the continuation of the hearing.

However, counsel to the defendants, Akinwale Kola-Taiwo, asked the court for a short date because “the matter is for mention today and not continuation as disclosed by the prosecution.”

Justice Oweibo granted the request of the defense and adjourned the matter till October 5, 6, and 7 for the continuation of trial, DailyNigerian reports.
