Naira Marley Faces Seven Years In Jail With Latest Charges

Naira Marley, real name Azeez Fashola, faces 11 charges for alleged credit card fraud. The charges were filed today with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 before a Lagos State High Court.

 

He had been arrested last Friday by EFCC for openly supporting online fraud commonly called ‘Yahoo Yahoo’. He was arrested with four other boys, one of which is the upcoming “Shaku Shaku” crooner, Zlatan.

 

According to EFCC, some of the credit cards belong to Nicole Louise Malyon and Timea Fedorne Tatar. The anti-graft agency also stated that the charges against Naira Marley are alleged crimes in contravention of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act and the Cyber Crimes Act.

The charges read in part,

“That you, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Raze (still at large), on or about the 11th day of December 2018, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, conspired amongst yourselves to use access card 42658840359191132 issued to persons other than you in a bid to obtain gain and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27(1)(b) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015 and punishable under Section 33(2) of the Same Act.

 

“That you, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, aka Naira Marley, and Raze (still at large), on or about the 10th day of May 2019, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, with intent to defraud possessed counterfeit card 4921819410257431 issued to Timea FedorneTatar and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 33(9) of Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act 2015.”

 

Reports also reveal that Naira Marley risks seven years imprisonment. This will occur if the court finds him guilty of credit card fraud, as Section 33 (2) states, which he stands accused of breaching.

 

Section 33 (2) reads:

“Any person who uses: a counterfeit access device; an unauthorised access device; an access device issued to another person; resulting in a loss or gain commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not more than seven years or a fine of not more than N5,000,000.00 and forfeiture of the advantage or value derived from his act.”

 

Naira Marley risks seven years in jail if found guilty.
