The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it can’t release Naira Marley because the evidence against him is overwhelming.
The EFCC said this in reaction to the release of Zlatan Ibile and three others, while Naira Marley remains in custody
KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Zlatan was released on Tuesday evening following his arrest alongside Naira Marley and three others over their alleged involvement with cybercrime on Friday 10th March.
The EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade in a new statement confirmed that the suspects were released on administrative bail and also revealed why Naira Marley is still in detention. He said:
“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.”
