A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted fresh counts filed against Naira Marley b y the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Naija News had reported earlier that the EFCC filed an 11-count charge against the singer, who was arrested alongside Zlatan Ibile and three others.

With this development, the musician effectively risks seven years in jail if found guilty, as Section 33 (2) which he was accused of breaching, reads: β€œAny person who uses: a counterfeit access device; an unauthorised access device; an access device issued to another person; resulting in a loss or gain commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term of not more than seven years or a fine of not more than N5,000,000.00 and forfeiture of the advantage or value derived from his act.”

The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos State High Court.

Some of the credit cards, according to the EFCC, bore the names- Nicole Louise Malyon, and Timea Fedorne Tatar.
