Naira Marley’s trial on claims of online fraud was halted and postponed by the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.

An adjournment was required because the police continued to refuse to introduce the defendant, thereby halting the proceedings.

November 13 and 30 have been chosen as the new dates for the trial of Nigerian artist Azeez Fashola, better known by his stage name Naira Marley, who is accused of cybercrime.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is looking into the musician on 11 counts of conspiracy and credit card theft, which has put him in the spotlight legally.

During the previous court session, Naira Marley’s counsel, Olalekan Ojo, stated that the musician was significantly absent from the proceedings because he was being held by the police, allegedly in connection with Mohbad’s tragic death.

Ojo then requested that the trial be postponed.

Prosecution lawyer Bilkisu Buhari asked the court to issue a production warrant against Naira Marley in order to ensure his presence at the forthcoming postponed date.

Presiding Judge Nicholas Oweibo granted the prosecutor’s petitions and issued a production warrant for the accused.
