In addition to the 11-count charges of “conspiracy, possession of counterfeit credit cards, and fraud” on him, the anti-graft agency had said it retrieved more evidence against the singer after a forensic probe.

The singer was, however, got embroiled in a fresh wave of controversy after a Lagos court ordered his arrest over alleged car theft.

While he dismissed the claims as mischievous, Marley was later arraigned on four counts of conspiracy, stealing, assault, and obstructing the police before the Lagos state magistrates’ court.

But Ayodeji Awokulehin, the magistrate, recently said that the singer has initiated settlement talks with Adelekan Ademola, the complainant.
