The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Friday said its Lagos Zonal Command has taken over the probe of an actress and cosmetologist Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin for alleged new naira notes policy violation.
The anti-graft agency said items recovered from Omoseyin at the point of arrest include a Range Rover and iPhone mobile devices.
Omoseyin, 31, was arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Fraud Related Offences Commission, (ICPC) on February 1, 2023 along Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, following intelligence report.
She was suspected of tampering with the redesigned naira notes, an offence contrary to Section 21 (5) of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN Act, 2007.
Her arrest followed a video of her spraying and stepping on the redesigned naira notes at a party, which trended online.
In the viral video, she was also seen flaunting wads of the new naira notes.
According to a statement by the EFCC’s Head, Media & Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, “The suspect was subsequently handed over to the EFCC on Thursday, February 2, 2023 for further investigations.”
