Nigerian musician, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley was, on Monday, arraigned at the Federal High Court in Lagos over an alleged credit card fraud.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged him with 11-counts of the offence before Justice Nicolas Oweibo.
He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges when read to him.
The judge then adjourned the case until May 30 for the hearing of his bail application.
Justice Oweibo ordered that the musician be remanded in prison until his bail application is determined.
Marley risks seven years in jail if found guilty in accordance with Section 33 (2) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) Act, 2015.
EFCC had arrested Naira Marley in connection with an alleged advance fee fraud known as ‘yahoo yahoo’ in the Nigerian parlance.
Following his arrest, the anti-graft agency filed an 11-count charge against him.
The charges with suit number FHC/L/178C/19 were filed before a Lagos High Court.
