Singer Naira Marley, who recently got released by EFCC, has revealed that he has been arrested 124 times when he was still living in England.

Shortly after his release from the commision’s custody, the singer could be seen saying in a live video:

“Lemme tell You, you don’t know me I have been arrested 124 times in England and i am not doing any other type of music, No slow songs, no love songs, just street music”.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC ) confirmed the singer’s arrest which they also gave reasons for.

According to EFFCC spokesperson, Tony Orilade, popular singer Afeez Fashola aka Naira Marley was nabbed by operators this morning , May 10th. Giving reason for Naira Marley’s arrest, he said:

“Yes, he is with us. He’s not the only person; he had some other persons also arrested alongside (him). They were arrested in relation to advance fee fraud — Internet-related cases and all of that. Give me a little time and I will get you

the details.”

Many have since connected Naira Marley’s arrest to his vocal support and defence of internet fraudsters popularly known as ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’ on social media and even going as far as to say that cybercrime is not a crime.

We reported earlier that veteran entertainer, Ruggedman who is one of the critics and campaigners against yahoo yahoo said during a chat with City FM that he is happy about Naira Marley’s arrest because it would give him a reality check and also serve as a deterrent to those involved in cybercrime.

However, Nigerian singer, Davido was one person who threw his weight behind Naira Marley following his arrest.
