Fast rising Nigerian rappers, Afeez Fashola (aka Naira Marley) and Temidayo Omoniyi (aka Zlatan), who were arrested on Friday morning by the Economic and Financial Crimea Commission in connection with alleged cases of internet fraud and money laundering are still in detention.
The EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, in an interview with Punch confirmed that the artistes have still not been released. Orilade said, “They are still with us as we are talking.”
Asked if the singers would spend the weekend in custody, he said, “they are still with us. When they are released, I will let you know”.
The singers were arrested based on “intelligence report” allegedly linking them to cybercrime offences. The commission said the artistes were apprehended along with three other suspects, Tiamiu Abdulrahman, Adewunmi Adeyanju and Musa Abubakar, following an early morning raid at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
