Writer and singer of “Am I A Yahoo Boy,” Naira Marley has allegedly been a wanted criminal in the United Kingdom, contrary to his lawyer’s claim as a first time offender.

Concise News understands that the defendant of the singer, Taiwo Oreagba, in the ongoing case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said he had never committed an offence.

However, in a Wednesday report by SaharaReporters, it was revealed that the singer was declared wanted by Lewisham Police, United Kingdom, in 2014.

The singer is currently in a legal battle with EFCC over allegations bordering on involvement with advance fee fraud and cybercrime.

When the musician appeared in at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos on Monday, 20th of May, 2019, Oreagba had pleaded with Hon. Justice I.N Oweibo, the Judge presiding over the case, that the singer was a first time offender.

But Naira Marley was pictured in a black T-shirt and a swollen left eye in his mugshot and the caption that read: “Azeez Fashola, 19, is wanted by police in connection with an incident in Surrey Canal Road, New Cross on March 5.”

The singer has been remanded until the 30th of May, when hearing for his bail application would hold.
