Naira Marley's Cybercrime Trial Delayed Due to Judge's Absence

The trial of the controversial singer, Naira Marley, who faces charges of alleged cybercrime, has experienced a delay due to the absence of the judge, Justice Nicholas Owiebo, who was meant to give a verdict at the Federal High Court in Lagos State. 

The court session scheduled for Monday, November 13, did not proceed as planned because the judge was attending a judges' conference.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been prosecuting Azeez Fashola, known as Naira Marley, on cybercrime charges since May 14, 2019. 

Fashola was arraigned before Justice Nicholas Oweibo on May 20, 2019, and he pleaded not guilty. The court granted him bail, and the trial has been ongoing.

Justice Oweibo previously issued a warrant for the defendant's production due to his absence from the trial on October 6. The court had adjourned the case to November 13 and 30 for the trial to continue.
