Celebrities will be prosecuted if found guilty for misusing Nigerian currency – EFCC

Following Bobrisky’s case, additional celebrities will be prosecuted for misusing Nigerian currency, according to the EFCC.

The EFCC has indicated that several celebrities are currently under investigation and are expected to be prosecuted for misappropriation of funds.

“Increasingly, members of the public are drawing the attention of the Commission to video recording of abuse of the Naira by Nigerians from all walks of life,”

“These gestures amply demonstrate rising consciousness of the public to the sanctity of our national currency and the need for collaborative engagement to sustain the tempo.

“To this end, the Commission will always investigate and prosecute anyone involved in the abuse of the Naira. Old videos being exhumed and flying around for the attention of the Commission are noted as the Commission is sensitive to the fact that its Special Task Force against Naira Abuse and Dollarization of the economy commenced operations on February 7, 2024. However, going forward, new videos of such infractions will be investigated and prosecuted.

“At the moment, the Commission is investigating several celebrities involved in Naira abuse. Many of them have made useful statements to the Commission and many more have been invited by investigators working on the matter.” EFCC said in a statement.
