In the aftermath of the investigations and crackdown on Nigerian celebrities who are accused of abusing the Naira, singer Portable has made a plea to the EFCC to be lenient if they have videos of him spraying the currency.

The ‘Zazzu zeh’ singer took to Instagram live on Wednesday to ask for forgiveness from the anti-graft agency for spraying Naira and promised not to do it again.

He stated: “I help a lot of people; after God comes Government, Please forgive me if you have videos of me spraying money; I will not spray money anymore.”

Portable’s appeal video quickly went viral after Instagram celebrity Cubana Chief Priest was charged with violating the Central Bank Act of 2007.

Cubana Chief Priest is facing three charges for allegedly abusing the Naira.

His arraignment follows the EFCC’s announcement of its intention to prosecute several celebrities for Naira abuse.

Statement

In his live video, he made an appeal to EFCC and demonstrated his generosity by offering transfers to his fans and those in need, encouraging them to open bank accounts.

“I use my money to build love. I used my money to build relationships. Did I spray money at the club? I was spraying money in the area where they need me,” he explained.

“I didn’t deface the Naira; I helped many people, after God is Government; please forgive me if you have videos of me spraying money, I will not spray money anymore.”

”If it’s about money, open bank accounts, and let’s make transfers.”

Cubana Chief Priest

The commission reaffirmed its commitment to holding accountable anyone found guilty of violating the laws related to this offence: “It will not relent in its no-sacred-cow mode of operations, and the public should be wary of running afoul of laws against the crime.”

This statement was released in response to the successful conviction of prominent crossdresser Bobrisky, who received a six-month prison sentence without an option of fine from the Federal High Court in Lagos for Naira mutilation.

Judge Abimbola Awogboro delivered the verdict after the controversial crossdresser pleaded guilty. This punishment was a result of Bobrisky’s earlier arrest by EFCC.

Mr Awogboro, in his ruling, emphasized that Bobrisky’s punishment is a deterrent to prevent others from engaging in Naira abuse.
