Cubana Chief Priest Faces EFCC Charges for Naira Abuse, Court Date Set

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arraign Pascal Okechukwu, also known as Cubana Chief Priest, before the Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday, April 17, 2024.

It was gathered that Okechukwu faces accusations of abusing the Nigerian currency.

According to the EFCC’s prosecutor, Senior Advocate of Nigeria Rotimi Oyedepo, and seven other lawyers representing the commission’s chairman, Okechukwu is charged with three counts of allegedly spraying and tampering with naira notes at a social event, violating the Central Bank Act of 2007.

The charges, filed on April 4, detail instances where Okechukwu allegedly tampered with N500 notes issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria. One count relates to an incident on February 13, 2024, at Eko Hotel, where Okechukwu purportedly sprayed the notes for two hours during a dance at a social gathering.

The second count dates back to 2020, alleging a similar offence during a social event in Lagos, where Okechukwu again sprayed N500 notes for two hours.

The third count accuses Okechukwu of a similar offence in January 2024 during another social event in Lagos, again involving the spraying of N500 notes.

Okechukwu’s arraignment before Justice Kehinde Ogundare underscores the EFCC’s commitment to enforcing financial regulations and combating currency abuse in Nigeria.
