Recall that Naira Marley was arraigned in 2019 on an 11-count charge of credit card fraud.

They told the court how Naira Marley frequently visited sites where stolen credit cards were sold to interested fraudsters.

The experts also revealed what was described as “shocking evidence” recovered from the defendant’s mobile device.

Counsel to the defendants, Akinwale Kola-Taiwo opposed and asked the court for postponement.

“The matter is for mention today and not continuation as disclosed by the prosecution”, he argued.

Justice Oweibo granted the prayer of the defence and adjourned the matter until October 5, 6 and 7, 2021.
