EFCC has arrested Cubana Chief Priest for alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
Glamtush reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly arrested popular socialite, Pascal Okechukwu, known better as Cubana Chief Priest for alleged money laundering and tax fraud .
This online platform understands that Okechukwu, who was arrested at the Lagos airport on Thursday, is being quizzed by anti-graft operatives while the agency was said to be on the hunt for his accomplices.
It was gathered that only his wife and family members were allowed to see him since he was taken into 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.
The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
Okechukwu’s arrest is coming weeks after his acolyte, Obinna Iyiegbu, known as Obi Cubana, was detained by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for alleged drug dealing.
