A Nigerian activist identified as Mayorwiz has taken to twitter to reveal the reason for Naira Marley’s continued detainment in EFCC custody despite being granted bail some days ago. 

According to Nigerian activist, Naira Marley is still in prison over his inability to find a level 10 officer to stand for him as surety. Recall that this was part of his bail conditions. 

He wrote:

Naira Marley can’t get a level 10 officer to stand for him as surety. Where are all the marlians? If your parents are level 10 officer tell them to go and stand for him

Recall, On May 10, 2019, Naira Marley, born Afeez Fashola was arrested by the EFCC alongside men now identified as rapper, Zlatan Ibile, Rahman Jago, Guccy Branch and another unknown person. Five days later, Zlatan Ibile, and three others were released.

The singer appeared before the Federal High Court, Ikoyi for alleged internet fraud where he pled not guilty to charges against him. 

At the conclusion of his plea, the singer’s bail hearing was scheduled for today, May 30, 2019.

The motion for his bail was presented and the court granted him the bail on the conditions of; a Two Million Naira (2,000,000) bond, and two sureties, one with a landed property and the other, a Civil Servant, not lower than a level 10 officer.
