When the defence counsel asked the witness to confirm if his analysis had also covered the possible number of persons that had used the said Naira Marley’s iPhone, the witness replied that the number of persons was not ascertained.

The defence asked, “As an experienced operative, are you aware that it is possible for a person other than the owner of a phone to have access to the use of that phone?”

The witness replied, “That will only be possible where the owner grants access.”

When the witness was asked who supplied him with the password to the iPhone, he told the court that the defendant provided the password to the investigating operatives who consequently, transmitted the same to him for his analysis.

He told the court that he only had knowledge of the period the iPhone was brought to him for forensics and not when it was taken from the defendant.

When asked to confirm the number on the iPhone (Naira Marley’s iPhone) the witness told the court that the registered number on the phone is iCloud +447426343432.

Meanwhile, when the defence counsel reminded the witness that he had told the court during the examination, that the telephone number of the defendant was 07426343732, the witness replied that any sim can be inserted into a device.

When asked to confirm if there is a difference between the owner and user of a device, the witness answered, “The names on a phone can be changed depending on what the owner chooses to use.”

The defence then asked the witness to show to the court from the two pages of his analysis summary, where he had indicated that there was a change of names in the device.

The witness replied that although it was not captured, the content of his report also reflects the content of the device as recovered therein.

Justice Oweibo adjourned the trial of Naira Marley until November 30, December 13, and December 14.
