Why we did not release Naira Marley – EFCC

The Economic Financial Crime and Commission (EFCC) has explained why Naira Marley is yet to be released from its custody.

This newspaper has earlier reported how Zlantan and three others arrested with  Naira Marley were released on Tuesday.

They were arrested over their alleged involvement with cybercrime on May 10.

The  EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade in a new statement  revealed why Naira Marley is still in detention .

“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.”
