The Economic and financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested Nigerian socialite Cubana Chief Priest on charges bordering on hiding and tax fraud, officials familiar with the matter said.
Pascal Okechukwu, his real name, was arrested at the lagos airport on Thursday, however anti-graft officials hushed the event amidst pressure from his associates and family, who said the matter may complicate conditions for others probably connected to the alleged racket.
Mr Okechukwu’s arrest has made it impossible for him to return birthday greetings from his nearly four million Instagram followers, this newspaper understands, with only his mate being allowable to see him in custody.
It was not immediately clear once he would be granted bail or the level of information officials had been able to squeeze from him as of Saturday night.
“The matter remains under investigation,” a source said anonymously.
Cubana Chief Priest has gained nationwide acclaim as an ambassador for many national brands, as well as Bullet.
His arrest came weeks when another socialite obi Cubana was arrested by the anti-narcotics agency NDLEA.
