A Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos on Friday issued a production warrant against singer Azeez Fashola also known as Naira Marley.

The musician is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on 11-count charges bordering on conspiracy and credit card fraud.

At the resumed sitting on Friday, counsel to the defendant, Olalekan Ojo (SAN) informed the court that the defendant was unavoidably absent from court owing to his being detained by the police for interrogation in respect of the death of singer Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad.
