On Tuesday night, Zlatan regained his freedom alongside his three crew members.

According to an EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, “There is overwhelming evidence against Naira Marley; so we can’t afford to release him on administrative bail like Zlatan and the three others”.

He continued “That Zlatan has been released does not mean they have been discharged and acquitted. Naira Marley is still in our custody and will be charged to court soon and we will make the charges known in an official statement soon.”

The EFCC spokesman said the agency has plans to use information volunteered by the arrested gang to charge them to court.

Until then, the ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ singer will remain in detention.
