A forensic expert with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has testified in the cyber fraud case against Afeez Fashola, the Nigerian singer better known as Naira Marley.

The trial of the music artiste on an 11-count charge bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit cards, and fraud, resumed yesterday at the federal high court, Lagos.

Marley was first arraigned by the EFCC on May 20, 2019, on the said charges to which he pleaded not guilty.

An EFCC forensic expert identified as Augustine Anosike, who is the second prosecution witness (PW2), presented the findings of the anti-graft agency’s analysis of Marley’s iPhone during the latest court sitting.

Anosike narrated to Nicholas Oweibo, the presiding judge, how multiple credit card numbers were extracted while analysing the contents of a total of 2,410 messages found in the defendant’s mobile phone.

The evidence, labeled exhibit F, was a conclusion of his analysis of the defendant’s iPhone X version 10.6, model A 1901.

He told the court that a total of 977 short message service (SMS) and 1433 chat messages were discovered.

The witness read out a plethora of credit card numbers and messages sent from the phone on different dates and times, as well as OTP codes sent.

Anosike also listed some of the recipients of the messages to include one Yadd and another Raze.

The prosecution counsel, thereafter, told the court that all the analysed texts were contained in a CD.

He told the court that the prosecution had only printed out those portions it considered material to its case.

Consequently, he asked both the court and Olalekan Ojo (SAN), the defense counsel, if the prosecution could bring a projector to play the CD in the open court or not.

The judge granted his prayer and the matter was adjourned to October 27 (today) for the prosecution to play the CD.
