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

Okechukwu faces allegations of abusing the Nigerian currency, similar to the recent case involving celebrity crossdresser, Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky.


Following Bobrisky’s sentencing for naira abuse, social media platforms were flooded with videos showing various celebrities engaging in similar acts, prompting the EFCC to take action.

According to Dele Oyewale, the spokesman of the EFCC, the commission received numerous videos depicting celebrities abusing the naira, leading to investigations into the matter.

Cubana Chief Priest is expected to appear before Justice Kehinde Ogundare on a three-count charge related to spraying and tampering with Naira notes during a social event, which violates the provisions of the Central Bank Act of 2007.

The charges, filed by the EFCC’s prosecutor, Senior Advocate of Nigeria Rotimi Oyedepo, and seven other lawyers representing the executive chairman of the anti-graft Commission, accuse Okechukwu of tampering with funds in the denomination of N500 notes during separate social events in Lagos.

In one of the counts, it is alleged that Okechukwu, on February 13, 2024, at Eko Hotel, tampered with N500 notes issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria by spraying them for two hours, contravening the provisions of the Central Bank Act 2007.

The other counts also detail similar offenses allegedly committed by Okechukwu during social events in Lagos in 2020 and January 2024.

As the legal proceedings unfold, Cubana Chief Priest awaits his day in court to address the allegations brought against him by the EFCC.
