The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office, arrested two fast-rising Nigerian musicians – Afeez Fashola (aka Naira Marley) and Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael (aka Zlatan), in connection with alleged case of internet fraud and money laundering. Intelligence report had also linked them to cybercrime offences.
They were arrested along with: Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.

At the point of arrest, the Commission found and recovered a number of items, including laptops, from the suspects.
They have so far volunteered useful information about their involvement in the alleged criminal activities, even as investigations continue.
Could this finally affirm the speculations and rumours about them being fraudsters? Their flashy lifestyle and song lyrics must have surely baited them off as suspects. We’d have to wait and see how this ends.
