Abuse Of Naira: Court Frees Cubana Chief Priest As EFCC Withdraws Case



Cubana Chief Priest EFCC

A Federal High Court in Lagos has ruled in favor of celebrity bartender Pascal Okechukwu, widely known as Cubana Chief Priest, by granting a motion from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to withdraw its case of naira abuse levelled against him.

This decision follows the disclosure from both parties that they were considering an out-of-court settlement in the matter.

During the May 2 session, defense counsel Mr. Chikaosolu Ojukwu (SAN) informed the court of ongoing settlement discussions, leading to an adjournment until June 5 for a settlement report.

The court adjourned the case until June 5 for the settlement report. However, on Wednesday, the defense requested another adjournment, and the case was rescheduled for June 25 for a mention.

Cubana Chief Priest faced accusations of tampering with N500 denomination funds while dancing at a social event, which the EFCC claimed violated the Central Bank Act of 2007. He was initially arraigned on April 17 on a three-count charge related to Naira abuse.
