The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says singer, Afeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley; another musician Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael, aka Zlatan; and three other persons arrested with them have volunteered what it described as “useful information.”
Both Naira Marley and Zlatan alongside three other persons were arrested by the EFCC Lagos Zonal Office in connection with alleged case of internet fraud and money laundering.
The other three persons arrested alongside the two musicians are Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.
Their arrest followed an early morning raid on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
In a series of tweets via its verified Twitter handle @officialEFCC on Friday, the EFCC alleged that, at the point of arrest, its officials “found and recovered a number of items, including laptops, from the suspects.”
“They have so far volunteered useful information about their involvement in the alleged criminal activities, even as investigations continue,” the EFCC added.
