The court trial of Naira Marley, which was docked with an alleged criminal conspiracy and credit card fraud, will be arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on February 27th 2020.
During the resumption of his session on Thursday 12 December, the first prosecution witness identified as Dalhatu Buhari was interrogated by his lawyer Olalekan Ojo (SAN).
Upon being cross-examined, Dalhatu stated that he did not need a password to access the defendant’s computer according to the standards of his training and that information security training was available to anyone.
When asked if a computer security expert could log on to a computer and do what he likes in relation to the details of the credit card that would be found on the defendant’s computer, he said;
“It is not possible for just any expert in cyber security to access a computer and do anything he likes on it.
“This is because there are various aspects in cyber security and not all the tools used in cyber security are accessible to all the various aspects.”
Buhari also told the court that his analysis only recovered card details that were allegedly found on Naira Marley’s laptop even though he couldn’t get the date of registration of the administration of the account “because it is exclusive to the Apple Operating System and is only accessible to the company.”
EFCC’s statement added that their witness concluded his testimony by affirming that only the investigator could determine if the cards were fraudulently used.
The case was adjourned to February 27 and 28, 2020 thereafter.
