The EFCC, yesterday released one of Nigeria’s fast rising rapper Zlatan Ibile who has been in detention. Following his arrest alongside fellow rapper Naira Marley and three others.
These rappers have been alleged guilty of an involvement in cybercrime on Friday 10th March. Zlatan is said to have been released alongside his crew Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses, and Abubakar Musa.
Naira Marley is the only one who happens to remain in detention. Tony Orilade, EFCC spokesman in a chat statement confirmed that the suspects were released on administrative bail. He also revealed why Naira Marley is still detained.
“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.”
