Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley is an Afro-Beat artist who was born in Nigeria and grew up in the United Kingdom. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has preferred 11 charges verging on scams against Naira Marley for alleged credit card scams.
The artist properly may spend seven years in jail if he is actually found guilty. According to section 33 (2) which he was implicated of breaching, it reads: “Any person who uses: an imitation access tool; an unsanctioned access tool; a access tool issued to an additional person; leading to a loss or gain commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to jail time for a time not more than 7 years or a penalty of not more than N5,000,000.00 and loss of the benefit or value originated from his act.
Some of the credit cards, according to the EFCC, bore the names- Nicole Louise Malyon, as well as Timea Fedorne Tatar. The claimed crimes were in breach of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act and the Cyber Crimes Act.
The artist has actually been enmeshed in debate in the last one month following his decision to publicly support an internet fraudulent community called ‘Yahoo Yahoo.’
