Cubana Chief Priest arrives court for arraignment, pleads not guilty (Video)

Nigerian businessman, Pascal Chibuike Okechukwu better known as Cubana Chief Priest has arrived at court for arraignment.

Kemi Filani reported hours ago that EFCC had arraigned the businessman over Naira abuse. Channel Television reported that EFCC had filed a three-count charge against the businessman for allegedly spraying and tampering with the naira at a social event contrary to the provisions of the Central Bank Act of 2007.

In an update to it, the businessman is currently before Justice Kehinde Ogundare of the Federal High Court, Lagos.

Cubana has pleaded not guilty to the charges of naira abuse. While being arraigned in court this morning, his counsel, Chukwusolo Onukwi opposed the charges filed against him by the EFCC. He has also filed a bail application.

Two weeks back, EFCC arrested popular crossdresser, Bobrisky over abuse of the Naira which he pleaded guilty to, and had pleaded with the judge to give him another chance, promising to make good use of his platform to inform and educate his followers about spraying money. Unfortunately, the judge didn’t excuse his bad behavior.

Last week, the crossdresser was sentenced to jail for 6 months without an option of a fine over Naira abuse.
