The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) called in its second witness to testify before Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley, in the continuation of his alleged cyber fraud trial on Thursday, February 27.
Furthermore, the singer is facing over 11-count charge bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit cards and fraud.
EFCC’s second witness Mr. Anosike Augustine who is a mobile forensic expert with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), evaluates the contents of an iPhone 11 allegedly recovered from Naira Marley during the investigation.
He told Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos that he produced a report of his findings after yanking and analyzing the evidence recovered from the singer’s phone.
However after EFCC moved to submit the 30-page report, Naira Marley’s counsel and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Olalekan Ojo objected to the tendering of the document. He insisted that it was not part of the documents front-loaded to the defense team and he was unaware of its contents.
Justice Oweibo subsequently adjourned the case to allow the defense and prosecution team to sort out and reconcile whether the report was front-loaded or not.
