The evidence against Naira Marley is overwhelming - EFCC

The Economic Financial Crimes Commision, EFCC has finally reacted to the release of Zlatan Ibile and three others, while Naira Marley remains in custody.

EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade confirmed to Premium Times that three suspects were released on administrative bail, while the fourth suspect, Naira Marley still remains in custody.

“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.”

It has also been reported that Davido facilitated Zlatan’s release by allegedly hiring a Senior Advocate of Nigeria who helped in securing the bail of the singer.

The EFCC, however, said such report is not true.

Zlatan was released alongside his crew members, Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.
