The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested night life entrepreneur, Pascal Okechukwu aka Cubana Chief Priest on charges bordering on money laundering and tax fraud, officials familiar with the matter said.

Cubana Chief Priest was arrested at the Lagos airport on Thursday, but anti-graft officials hushed the development amidst pressure from his associates and family, who said the matter could complicate conditions for others likely connected to the alleged racket.

His arrest has made it impossible for him to return birthday greetings from his nearly four million Instagram followers, with only his wife being permitted to see him in custody.

It is 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.

A former close associate of Obinna Iyiegbu aka Obi Cubana, Cubana Chief Priest has gained nationwide acclaim as an ambassador for many national brands. He runs his own night club, XShrine.
