EFCC reacts as defence seek examination of SIM slot of Naira Marley’s iPhone

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday objected to an application for examination of the iPhone SIM slot of a musician, Azeez Fashola a.k.a Naira Marley, charged with cybercrime.

EFCC counsel, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, raised the objection during cross-examination of the second prosecution witness, Mr Augustine Anosike, before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

He said that the witness should not be made to open the SIM slot of the phone to determine SIM card presence, since he never opened it during his analysis.

EFCC preferred cybercrime charges against the musician on May 14, 2019.

The witness was also asked he had indicated that any information was deleted and retrieved.

In response, he told the court that the content of his report indicated that items recovered also included deleted information.

After several arguments, the court upheld the argument of prosecution against opening the SIM slot. The judge adjourned the case until April6, for continuation of trial.

Naira Marley born Azeez Fashola is being tried on 11 counts bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit credit cards and fraud.
