EFCC Arrests Naira Marley, Gives Reason For His Arrest

Zlatan Ibile was released alongside Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode (Rahman Jago), Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses, and Abubakar Musa, leaving only Marley in the net of EFCC.

EFCC spokesperson, Tony Orilade in a new statement corroborated reports that the suspects were released on administrative bail and also revealed why the controversial rapper is still in detention.

He said;

“There is overwhelming evidence against Naira Marley; so we can’t afford to release him on administrative bail like Zlatan and the three others.

“That Zlatan has been released does not mean they have been discharged and acquitted. Naira Marley is still in our custody and will be charged to court soon and we will make the charges known in an official statement soon.”
