Nigerian rapper, Afeez Fashola, publicly known as Naira Marley, has declared his resolve to help inmates awaiting trial to get a fair hearing. This revelation is coming after the singer spent 35 days in detention for internet fraud charges.

He was arrested on March 10, along with fellow singer and "Zanku" crooner, Zlatan Ibile. While Zlatan was released a few days later, Marley was not released from EFCC custody until much later on bail on June 14.

Naira Marley claims he has felt the frustrations of inmates and has hinted at helping such persons get justice.

The 30-year old singer shared the news on his official Instagram account, @nairamarley, saying that there were several other inmates in jail without trial or conviction who might need help. He said:

I have to help a lot of niggas in jail. I met one guy, he has been in jail for 9 years but never been to court, as they haven’t found him guilty yet. What if he is not even guilty?. I met another nigga who has been in jail for over 2 years because he is in a relationship with one rich woman’s daughter and the woman locked him up for not leaving her daughter.
