KanyiDaily recalls that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had on May 14, 2019, charged Naira Marley with 11 counts, bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit credit cards and fraud.

The court admitted the evidence on the grounds that the iPhone which was analysed had already been admitted in evidence before the court.

The court consequently, overruled the earlier objection of defence counsel, Mr Olalekan Ojo, SAN, to the admissibility of the document and marked the same as exhibit F.

”l have considered the agreement of both parties as well as the ground for the objection, I consider the C.D to be admissible in view of the nature of this case and the evidence of other prosecution witnesses.

“Accordingly, it is hereby admitted in evidence and marked exhibit F.” the court held.
