The Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi has granted bail to fast rising Nigerian Musician Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira marley

His bail came more than 7 days after he was arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission

At the resumed bail application, his lead defense counsel Olalekan Ojo for the singer apologized for his absence at the initial arraignment on May 20 due to heavy down poor.

Ojo urged the court to accept the bail application Prima Facie based on the presumption of his innocence in accordance with Section 162 (1)

The defense also pleaded that a liberal approach is taken in hearing the bail application.

The prosecution counsel, led by Rotimi Oyedepo, however, argued that it is not the temporary release of the singer that mattered but the final judgment

He, therefore, urged the court to grant accelerated hearing rather than bail.
