Cubana Chief Priest Arrested By EFCC For Fraud

Flippstack understands that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, has arrested Nigerian socialite,  Pascal Okechukwu popularly known as Cubana Chief Priest.

This online news platform learned that Cubana Chief Priest was arrested by EFCC on charges bordering on money laundering and tax fraud, officials familiar with the matter said.

A report monitored on Peoples Gazette by Newsone Nigeria, says Cubana Chief Priest an ally of Obi Cubana,  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.

The report said Cubana Chief Priest’s arrest by EFCC, has made it impossible for him to return birthday greetings from his nearly four million Instagram followers, Peoples Gazette understands, with only his wife being permitted to see him in custody.

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.

Flippstack reports that Cubana Chief Priest’s arrest is coming weeks after another socialite Obi Cubana was arrested by National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), a Federal law enforcement agency in Nigeria under the Federal Ministry of Justice charged with eliminating the growing, processing, manufacturing, selling, exporting, and trafficking of hard drugs.

However, Flippstack Nigeria reports that as of the time of filing this report, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was yet to issue a statement regarding Cubana Chief Priest’s arrest.
