The witness report also revealed that 977 Short Message Service (SMS) and 1,433 chat messages, were discovered in the iPhone and there were also seven pending status update messages.

Naira Marley, who remained adamant of his innocence against all the charges levelled against him, was arrested alongside rapper Zlatan Ibile and three other men back in May 2019. He was later arraigned in court but the case was adjourned, while investigation continued.
