Popular barman Pascal Okechukwu, aka Cubana Chief Priest, Executive Director of Cubana Group has been detained by the police according to multiple sources.
Cubana Chief Priest was reportedly detained by the Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Unit in Lagos State.
The reports said he was invited to the Force Headquarters Annex Lagos today for questioning on his alleged ”abuse of police escorts and his unexplainable wealth”.
He arrived at the police annex at about 10 am this morning and has been with the police, answering questions from the officers.
A police source who confirmed this development stated that his detention followed an order from the Office of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, who has expressed shock at how some Nigerians abuse police personnel attached to them. The source said;
“We have detained Cubana Chief Priest and he is facing interrogation for misuse of police personnel as well as the illegal use of a weapon and his extravagant and unexplained lifestyle.
Reacting to his arrest controversial journalist Kemi Olunloyo, lampooned Nigerian entertainers for been quiet and not supportive after his arrest. She opined that most entertainers are in business because of club owners.
She also clamored for his release.
The entertainment industry is QUIET on Cubana Chiefpriest's police questioning just like they did during Naira Marley's arrest. It is important to support people who are part of your success. Without the clubs and the DJ's many of our events are meaningless. #kemitalks
