Just In: Court Rules On Naira Abuse Case Against Cubana Chief Priest

The Federal High Court in Lagos State has struck out the Naira abuse case against celebrity bartender, Pascal Okechukwu, popularly known as Cubana Chief Priest.

Egalitarian Voice recalls that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned Cubana Chief Priest on April 17.

He was charged with three counts of spraying and mishandling naira notes, actions that contravene Section 21(1) of the Central Bank Act of 2007.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail for N10 million.


The matter was initially adjourned to May 2, where Mr Chikaosolu Ojukwu, SAN, representing Okechukwu, indicated that both parties were seeking a settlement under Section 14(2) of the EFCC Act.
