Cubana Chief Priest, a well-known businessman, is supposedly being held by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on suspicions of money laundering and tax fraud.
The celebrity bartender was apprehended at the Lagos airport on Thursday, according to Peoples Gazette, and the incident has since been kept quiet to avoid provoking his accomplices.
“The matter is still under investigation,”
As of Saturday, an unidentified source told the Peoples Gazzette that it is unknown whether Cubana Chief Priest will be granted bail or how much information officials were able to obtain from him.
Okechukwu’s arrest comes only weeks after his partner, Obinna Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, was arrested for alleged drug peddling by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.
