EFCC detains rapper Naira Marley, reveals why he wasn’t released alongside Zlatan

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) released Nigerian rapper, Zlatan Ibile, following his arrest alongside fellow rapper Naira Marleyand three others over their alleged involvement with cybercrime on Friday 10th March.

Zlatan was later released alongside his crew Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses, and Abubakar Musa, leaving only Naira Marley in detention.

However EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade in a new statement confirmed that the suspects were released on administrative bail and also revealed why Naira Marley 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.”
