Pascal Okechukwu, a popular socialite, also known as Cubana Chief Priest, has disclosed that the insecurity in the southeast made him move his business to Lagos.

The nightlife promoter also said that concerns about abductions and violence were major factors deterring customers from the southeast.

He revealed this during a recent interview with BBC Igbo.

“Why I came to Lagos to do business is that most of our siblings are scared to go home… cause if they come home, I will do my business.

“There is widespread hunger in the South-East. It is our own community members who provide criminals with information.

“Our people began targeting the wealthy, so the wealthy stopped returning home during festivities. That is why I moved to Lagos to conduct my business.”

Okechukwu is facing a legal issue for alleged abuse of the naira. A Federal High Court in Lagos State on Wednesday, June 5, adjourned the case against him to June 25.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged him on April 17 on a three-count charge of allegedly spraying and tampering with the Naira notes during a social event at Eko hotel in Lagos.

Cubana had pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail of N10 million.
