Nigerian rapper Naira Marley will be back in court next month to commence his trial for alleged cyber fraud crimes.

The rapper was arrested by EFCC operatives on March 10th 2019 for advance fee scam and other cyber fraud crimes.

The EFCC filed 11 charges against the rapper in contravention of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act and the Cyber Crimes Act and if found guilty, is likely to spend seven years behind bars.

The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos State High Court.

10 days after his arrest, Naira Marley was arraigned before Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos.

He was however granted bail on May 30th but he remained in custody for two more weeks as he couldn’t fulfill his bail conditions of N2m and two sureties.

The judge also stated that one of the sureties must be a civil servant not below Grade Level 10 and must own a landed property in Lagos State.

The judge directed the EFCC to verify the bail terms and adjourned until October 22 for commencement of trial.
