The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said it will arraign prominent hip-hop stars, Afeez Fashola (Naira Marley) and Temidayo Omoniyi (Zlatan) soon.
EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, said EFCC that the commission had received an order to detain the duo, after arresting them alongside others on Friday morning in connection with alleged Internet fraud and money laundering.
When asked until when the musicians would be detained, Orilade said, “They will be charged to court. As soon as we have a clear date, I will let you know.”
The EFCC arrested the singers based on “intelligence report” and three other suspects — Tiamiu Abdulrahman, Adewunmi Adeyanju and Musa Abubakar — following an early morning raid at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.
The Commission last year launched Operation Cyber Storm to curb the activities of internet fraudsters, with over 150 suspects reportedly arrested across the country so far.
