A federal high court that sat in Lagos on February 13, remanded a Nollywood actress, Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin,in a correctional facility because she abused the new naira notes. The actress was seen in a viral video online, spraying and stepping on the Nigerian currency.

She was remanded by Justice Chukwuejekwu Aneke, after pleading not guilty to two count charges that the Economic and Financial Crime commission (EFCC) brought against her.

The charge EFCC placed on her was that, when dancing during a social gathering,she tempered with the sum of money, amounting to N100,000 issued by the CBN.

The commission said her offense warrants a punishment, under section 21 subsection 1,of the 2007 CBN act.

She was ordered by the judge to be remanded in the female section of Kirikiri, Nigerian correctional service. Her custody will last till February 15, when the application of her bail will be heard and determined.

Her charge reads:

“That you Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin on January 28,2023 at Monarch event centre, Lekki, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court whilst dancing during a social occasion tampered with the sum of N100, 000.00 (One Hundred Thousand Naira) issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria by spraying same in the said occasion and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under section 21 (1) of the Central Bank Act, 2007.”

Due to her plea of not guilty,counsel of the prosecution,Sulaiman Sulaiman, demanded that a trial date should be given by the court, urging that the defendant should be placed under a correctional facility.

However, when Adenike Goncalves,counsel to the defendant,stood to speak,she prayed for the court to give the defendant bail, until when the case will be heard and determined.

She also required that her client should be remanded under the custody of the EFCC, until the perfection of the bail terms,if the court grants it.

However, Justice Aneke, fixed the bail application to be on February 15, and the defendant should be in the correction facility.
