Nigeria, Townflex Entertainment News – The Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, has sent Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin, 31, to the Kirikiri Correctional Centre pending the outcome of her bail appeal for spraying naira notes at a public party.
On Wednesday, February 1, 2023, agents of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Fraud Related Offences Commission nabbed the actress along Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The ICPC, on the other hand, turned her over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for further investigation.
The EFCC arraigned Omoseyin before Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke of the Federal High Court on Monday on a two-count charge.
One of the count reads, “That you, Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin on the 28th day of January, 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 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.
The actress, on the other hand, pled not guilty to the charge.
Sulaiman Sulaiman, the prosecution’s counsel, asked the court for a trial date and asked that the defendant be lodged in the appropriate correctional facility.
In her response, the defendant’s counsel, Adenike Goncalves, asked the court to release the defendant on bail until the case was heard and decided.
Gonalves also asked that her client be held in EFCC custody awaiting the completion of the bail terms, if allowed by the court.
