The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Act, 2007’s Section 21(5), which the EFCC claimed the movie practitioner violated, was stated in a statement released on Friday by the anti-money laundering organisation.

She was reportedly questioned by the EFCC on Thursday, February 2, 2023, for further investigations after she was handed over to the agency by the ICPC.
“The 31-year-old was arrested after the video of her spraying and stepping on the newly redesigned Naira notes at a party surfaced online.
“In the viral video, she was also seen flaunting wads of the new Naira notes,” the statement today said, noting that, “Items recovered from her at the point of arrest include a Range Rover and iPhone mobile devices.”
