Estranged husband to Tiwa Savage, Teebillz has reacted to the remand of Naira Marley at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, custody by a federal high court in Lagos over alleged credit card fraud.
Marley who was charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) with 11-counts pleaded not guilty before Justice Nicolas Oweibo.
Justice Oweibo, in his ruling, ordered that the musician be remanded in prison and adjourned the case until May 30 for the hearing on his bail application.
Reacting to the development, TeeBillz in a post on his Instagram page prayed for Naira Marley to be released even as he urged older Nigerian musicians to stop calling out young ones on social media.
He wrote: “May the grace of God be sufficient for the needs of this talented young man during his trials.
“We all make mistakes and my personal take is that most of these young guys don’t know better and I feel it’s our obligation as the older ones to put them right instead of just calling them out on social media for unnecessary validation!
“I don’t condone fraud or ignorance.”
Recall that Ruggedman has been accused of masterminding the arrest of Marley and others.
Ruggedman, however, denied allegations, adding that he only he has nothing against Naira Marley and hopes he will be discerning and utilize his position of influence appropriately
Marley risks seven years in jail if found guilty in accordance with Section 33 (2) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) Act, 2015.
