Veteran musician, Daddy Showkey has appealed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to release fellow artiste Naira Marley who has been detained since May 10 for internet fraud-related allegations.
Daddy Showkey made the appeal in a video he shared on his Instagram handle on Wednesday.
Naira Marley was arrested by the anti-graft agency alongside Zlatan Ibile, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.
Zlatan has since been released with two others, while Naira Marley remains in the EFCC’s custody.
But in the passionate appeal, Daddy Showkey appealed to the Ibrahim Magu-led commission to temper justice with mercy regarding Naira Marley, whose real name is Afeez Fashola.
He said, “Temper justice with mercy. This is just a young man growing up, lets not use his mistakes to spoil his career we all went through so many things growing up….we can use him as a spokesman to young people against crime @officialefcc maybe he will learn with this.”
