EFCC to arraign Cubana Chief Priest for alleged abuse of naira at social event

Following the recent case involving Bobrisky, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arraign socialite Pascal Okechukwu, popularly known as Cubana Chief Priest, for reportedly spraying and mishandling the Nigerian currency at a social gathering, which goes against the Central Bank Act of 2007.

Cubana Chief Priest is facing a three-count charge and is scheduled to appear before Justice Kehinde Ogundare at the Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday, April 17.

The case filed on April 4 will be prosecuted by Rotimi Oyedepo (SAN).
