Naira Marley did not publicly defend cybercrime- Management declares
Cash Ellz Entz, the management company representing embattled singer,Naira Marley has said the singer didn’t endorse cybercrime publicly.
His management company made this known via a statement they released on Thursday on their social media page.
The statement read in part: “Items found on Naira Marley does not belong to him. Items retrieved were borrowed so he can upload music, videos, and record while visiting Nigeria.”
They also stated that the authorities were using the ‘Issa Goal’ crooner as a scapegoat for cybeercrime in the nation.
TheNewsGuru reports that the budding singer is still being held in EFCC custody despite the release of colleague, Zlatan Ibile, and others.
EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, said Zlatan and the others were released on administrative bail.
“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,” Mr Orilade said.
