Court remands Nollywood actress over Naira abuse



A Nollywood actress, Olu­wadarasimi Omoseyin, who was seen in a viral video, spraying new Naira notes has been remanded by a Lagos Federal High Court.

On Monday, the trial judge, Justice Chuk­wuejekwu Aneke, made the remand order after the actress pleaded not guilty to the charges made against her by the Lagos zone of the Economic and Finan­cial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The judge ordered the actress to be remanded in Kirikiri female section of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCoS), till Wednesday, Febru­ary 15, when her bail application would be heard and determined.

“That you Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin on the 28th day of January, 2023 at Mon­arch event centre, Lekki within the jurisdiction of this honour­able court whilst dancing during a social occasion tampered with the sum of N100, 000.00 (One Hun­dred Thousand Naira) issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria by spraying same in the said occa­sion and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and pun­ishable under Section 21 (1) of the Central Bank Act, 2007.” the charges read in part against the defendant during the court session.

This is coming after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) through its official twitter account, release a statement last week, warning Nigerians to desist from abusing the naira in any form.
