Cubana Chief Priest Allegedly Detained By Inspector General of Police Monitoring Unit-Reports Say

Popular Instagram celebrity Barman, Cubana Chief Priest known in real life as Pascal Okechukwu has been detained by the Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Unit in Lagos State.

He arrived at the Force Headquarters Annex, Lagos, around 10 am today and was detained afterwards after he was invited for alleged misuse of police escorts and weapons.

The investigation was said to be an order from the Inspector General of Police.

According to Cutie_Julls, a Police source said, “We have detained Cubana Chief Priest and he is facing interrogation for misuse of police personnel as well illegal use of weapon and his extravagant and unexplained lifestyle.” Cubana Chief Priest is known to post pictures of himself in private jets and exotic cars to impress his 1.6 million followers on Instagram. On January 6, 2020, he posted a video of himself throwing freshly minted bundles of naira notes to a huge crowd, a crime which attracts a sentence of six months or a fine of N50,000 or both. His arrest comes a month after another Instagram celebrity and Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money, was detained for similarly misusing police escort.

Gradually it looks like all the big men in Nigeria who have been tagged with illegal way of making money are going down.
