‘Please Forgive Me’ – Portable Appeals To EFCC Over Naira Abuse

Written by Yusuf Zubairu

Controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, has begged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to forgive him if they have any evidence against him abusing the Naira by spraying the currency in the past.

His plea comes after the EFCC filed a three-count charge against Cubana Chief Priest, the nightlife promoter, for alleged abuse of the Nigerian currency.

In an Instagram live session on Tuesday, Portable promised to stop spraying money.

The ‘Zazoo Zeh’ hitmaker also encouraged his followers to open bank accounts. The singer said he will henceforth be making transfers to his supporters and “people in need” through their bank accounts.

“I use my money to build love. I used my money to build relationships. Did I spray money at the club? I was spraying money in the area where they need me,”

he said.

I didn’t deface the naira, I help a lot of people, After God na Government, Please forgive me if you have videos of me spraying money, no more spraying of money.”

Last Friday, Bobrisky, the crossdresser, was sentenced to six months in prison for abusing the naira.

Cubana will be arraigned on April 17, before Kehinde Ogundare, a judge of the federal high court in Lagos.

The EFCC recently said it is investigating several celebrities who may have been involved in currency abuse.
