Naira Abuse

Cubana Chief Priest was accused of tampering with Naira notes at social events, contrary to the Central Bank Act of 2007.


Many people had expected the court process to be a replica of popular crossdresser-Bobrisky’s case, since they were both arraigned for similar offences.

However, to the surprise of many, the court granted the businessman bail.

The court also assigned his lawyer to his custody for 14 days pending bail conditions.

An earlier motion challenging the court’s jurisdiction was introduced, and the next court date is scheduled for May 2, 2024. That is after the 14 days.


During the hearing, Chief Priest’s counsel revealed that he was presently unwell, emphasising that only those who are alive can undergo trial.

After the court granted him bail, the entire social media space was set ablaze.

Understanding The Naira Abuse Case

First, Bobrisky pleaded guilty when he was arraigned, Cubana Chief Priest pleaded not guilty, hence, this alone changes the whole procedure.

You see, Bobrisky was sentenced to prison for 6 months without an option of fine having pleaded guilty. He admitted that he was wrong which made his/her process faster

In Cubana Chief Priest’s case, he was granted Bail because he pleaded not guilty.

He can easily claim that the money in the videos used as evidence against him are just papers which he is using to show off.

What this means is that, the EFCC now have to prove beyond doubt that he’s guilty before the court can sentence him to prison, fine him or both.

Cubana Chief Priest Can Still Be Jailed
