Nigerian socialite and celebrity bar man, Pascal Chibuike Okechukwu better known as Cubana Chief Priest has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission EFCC.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, has arrested Pascal Okechukwu, popularly known as Cubana Chief Priest, a Nigerian socialite.
According to officials familiar with the situation, he was arrested by the EFCC on charges of money laundering and tax fraud.
According to Peoples Gazette, Cubana Chief Priest who is Obi Cubana’s business partner, was arrested at the Lagos airport on Thursday, but anti-graft officials hushed the development amidst pressure from his associates and family, who said the matter could complicate conditions for others likely connected to the alleged racket.
It was not immediately clear when he would be granted bail or the level of information officials had been able to squeeze from him as of Saturday night.
“The matter is still under investigation,” a source said anonymously about Cubana Chief Priest who has gained national acclaim as an ambassador for many national brands, including Bullet.
As of the time of filing this report, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was yet to issue a statement regarding his arrest.
