Some celebrities have reacted to the arrest of Afeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley and Omoniyi Temidayo aka Zlatan asking for their immediate release.
Recall that Naira Marley and Zlatan were arrested by the EFCC on Friday, May 10, 2019 allegedly for fraud and money laundering offences.
There are speculations however, that Marley’s arrest may be connected to justification of internet fraud.
In a recent Instagram live session, Naira Marley had urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they were the reason money circulated to the common man.
“All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?”
