Issa Goal hit singer, Afeez Fashola (aka Naira Marley) and Zanku originator, Temidayo Omoniyi (aka Zlatan), who were arrested on Friday morning by the Economic and Financial Crimea Commission in connection with alleged cases of internet fraud and money laundering, were still in detention on Saturday night, PUNCH reports.

The EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, in an interview with our correspondent, confirmed that the artistes had not been released.

Orilade said, “They are still with us as we are talking.”

Asked if the singers would spend the weekend in custody, he said, “They are still with us. When they are released, I will let you know.”

The EFCC arrested the singers based on “intelligence report” allegedly linking them to cybercrime offences.

The commission said the artistes were apprehended along with three other suspects, Tiamiu Abdulrahman, Adewunmi Adeyanju and Musa Abubakar, following an early morning raid at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos.

A statement by the EFCC had said,“At the point of arrest, the commission recovered a number of items, including laptops from the suspects. They have so far volunteered information about their involvement in the alleged criminal activities, even as investigations continue.”

The commission last year launched Operation Cyber Storm to curb the activities of internet fraudsters.

Over 150 suspects have been reportedly arrested across the country.

Naira Marley last week released a song titled ‘Am I a Yahoo Boy?’, which sparked controversy on social media.

Following the release, veteran rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, popularly known as Ruggedman, in a video that went viral last week, criticised the song.

Naira Marley responded to the criticism in an Instagram Live video ridiculing Ruggedman.

However, the rap artiste stated that he had to express his opinion about Naira Marley’s comments because they had rubbed off on other musicians in Nigeria.

He also said he had his brand to protect, adding that he could not watch someone else “drag his name and brand in the mud”.

Death Of Video Vixen: Clarence Peters Girlfriend Fumes, Faults Police ‘Murder Charge’ Claim

Clarence Peters girlfriend of 14 years, Jennifer has revealed more details on how popular dancer, Kodak passed away at her boyfriend’s house saying the video director was not even at the scene.

She spoke about how Clarence Peters was invited to the station and how he went there by himself knowing his hands are clean. She also went further to reveal an autopsy has not been carried out due to the lockdown and wants Nigerians to stop assuming over this case.

Below is Jennifer’s post revealing those who witnessed Kodak’s death (four dancers) and what they have said so far about it..

Kodak died on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, while charging her phone. She is believed to have been electrocuted.

SHE WROTE;

“It is SICKENING the corruption and laxity in the NIGERIAN POLICE FORCE!

But First, lemme start with you the ones who follow blogs and comment without thinking. That someone earns a living from breaking homes and destroying people’s reputation is something that should naturally be worrisome to you but NO, it refreshes you.

So, as Clarence’s 14yrs long girlfriend, Lemme state AUTHORITATIVELY that CLARENCE PETERS was invited to the police command, YABA and he went there willingly. He was NOT arrested, neither was he CHARGED WITH MURDER as stated by the press statement from the police command through their spokesperson BALA ELKANA!

Just because we chose to keep quiet until the autopsy result comes out before addressing the press and of course, the police report to exonerate him was signed and collected.

On Friday 2nd of May, 2020 an investigative team led by IPO, MR. POPOOLA, after the on-scene investigation was done, the body visited at the morgue, came to a conclusion they had no case with CLARENCE PETERS(who was not on the scene of the incident) SEGUN the business manager, the 4dancers and two other members of staff of CAPITAL DREAMS PICTURES, (all referred to as witnesses), that it was a NATURAL ACCIDENT. He wrote his report to that effect. Events took a different turn when The DCP- YETUNDE LONGE, came in and asked that the report be torn, he wrote a second one that she tore again. By the third report, then came in MR. OYE and his father Sir Shina Peters and she couldn’t continue with her foul play. She agreed they had NO CASE with him and the rest of the witnesses. “So why are u still holding him..” everyone asked, she said she was waiting for the autopsy result so she can attach it. When she saw she had been caught, she sent them to put out a press statement that he was charged for murder. So thinking Nigerians, can someone be “CHARGED” without an autopsy conducted?

Backtrack a bit, after LD passed on, it took more than 24hrs to seek the consent from her family to conduct that autopsy. By the time the consent was gotten, due to the COVID-19 caused NIGERIAN COURTS CLOSURE, the autopsy was to start on Monday being tomorrow.

So again, how are we talking “he’s being charged for MURDER”??? Since they decided to throw the first blow of negativity, let’s go ALL OUT with the information. You have all been waiting for a response from him and because he chose to be law-abiding, someone who contributes positively to the Nigerian economy, they want yo tarnish his name? And artistes, everyone is quiet? Nobody is asking questions other than “how can she be electrocuted”??? Is it right? Who is going to charge PHCN to court for the SURGE? Yetunde Alonge said if he was an ordinary person she would have let him go but because he and his parents are celebrities that is why.

Since u all seek to know of clarence “murdered” her if Clarence “raped” her, why can’t you all then march to PANTI and ask your police force questions? Don’t sit on blogs spilling fallacies and stamp your imprint by commenting ignorantly. We were going to wait for the results and her family but clearly, everyone is keeping quiet and dragging him in the mud. I WON’T! I have NEVER kept quiet in the face of ILLS, I won’t start now.
And to CP, Biodun stays strong cos THIS TOO SHALL PASS!!! 🤍ALWAYS and FOREVER!

And to EVERY BLOG who has gone out of their way to tell a lie- in the slide is the article posted by GLB, she took it down almost immediately before posting the witness’ account, how do we go from electrocution to RAPE? I don’t have an issue with an investigation as it NATURALLY, under NORMAL circumstances should be conducted anywhere in the world, BUT categorically alleging you know people he raped and abused is NOT sth to joke about.

This is how people mislead the ALREADY IGNORANT PUBLIC. Giving people a reason to form NEGATIVE opinions and I see people who I thought had sense-making SNIDE remarks? You want to know how we landed here, it was all your commenting. So kudos to the blogs and YOU ESPECIALLY, the ignorant Lot.
An educative or informative post be put up, you won’t see comments. When Dangote truck killed three of my aunts at once, there was no uproar. Then a NATURAL ACCIDENT will occur, u say it was MURDER!

May God forgive US ALL!

May His divine assistance remain always with us and may the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace, AMEN!”

Music director and cinematographer Clarence Peters has been arrested by the police in Lagos over the death of dancer Love Divines alias Kodak.

Kodak was said to have been electrocuted while charging and using her iPhone on Wednesday at Peters’ Omole Phase One residence.

She was alleged to have operated the plugged phone while sitting almost naked on the door railings with no footwear on.

She was also said to have sustained burns on her chest where her phone allegedly fell when she flung it as a result of the shock.

Although initial reports claimed she died on the set of a music video, it was however debunked as the planned video was alleged to have been botched following her death.

It was learnt that Peters was invited at the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba for questioning on Saturday night and has been detained since then.

Meanwhile, the dancer’s mother has taken to social media to denounce those impersonating her and sending account numbers for donations.

The woman, in a video shared on social media, said she neither authorized anyone nor was aware of such moves, describing those behind the fundraiser as fraudsters.

She said: “It’s a pity that she’s (Kodak’s) gone and it is painful. I just got information that a lady is posing herself to be me. I am Lasatanatu Ike, her mother.

“I have also been told that an account number is online. I have not posted my account number online.

“The girl seated next to me is her elder sister by the name Shekinah Glory Ike. Please I want you all to stand up and help me fight as you can see I cannot fight.”

Contacted, Police spokesman Bala Elkana confirmed the arrest of Clarence Peters, adding that the command was investigating the circumstances that led to the dancer’s death.

Elkana said Peters and all those who were at his residence when the incident occurred have been invited for questioning, adding that he would not be able to give further details at the moment.

On the allegation by the dancer’s mother, Elkana said no formal complaint of impersonation has been made, adding that the video would be forwarded to the SCIID for further action.
