The founder of Cubana Nightclub, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka, Obi Cubana risks six months in prison after breaching the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) rule during the burial of his mother in Oba, Anambra State.

In one of the videos uploaded by Obi Cubana on his Instagram and obtained by IGBERE TV during the days-long celebration of life for his mother, he is seen spraying naira notes to persons around him.

In another video, he is seen dancing on naira notes sprayed on him by guests at his party, while Kanayo O Kanayo and other guests were also captured on video spraying Cubana naira notes.

The act of spraying naira and dancing on the note is an abuse of Nigeria’s currency, and it contravenes Section 21 of the CBN Act 2007, which stipulates six months jail term.

According to the act:

(1) A person who tampers with a coin or note issued by the Bank is guilty of an offence and shall on notes and coins imprisonment for a term not less than six months or to a fine not less than N50,000 or to both such fine and imprisonment.

(2) A coin or note shall be deemed to have been tampered with if the coin or note has been impaired, diminished or lightened otherwise than by fair wear and tear or has been defaced by stumping, engraving, mutilating, piercing, stapling, writing, tearing, soiling, squeezing or any other form of deliberate and willful abuse whether the coin or note has or has not been thereby diminished or lightened.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-1692711567326837&output=html&h=300&adk=3211712123&adf=1730362583&pi=t.aa~a.1535770616~i.21~rp.4&w=360&lmt=1626631954&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=1206223629&psa=1&ad_type=text_image&format=360×300&url=https%3A%2F%2Figberetvnews.com%2F1395852%2Fjust-obi-cubana-trouble-risks-six-months-imprisonment%2F%23forward&flash=0&fwr=1&pra=3&rh=259&rw=310&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&sfro=1&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=ChEI8KLPhwYQ7obFo-DRuPe6ARI9AIq7lg_rN0AwXCrl66y77-4T7Pm888Y4qfQNoirrjjsTcJM8kykdVMG-a5U0V22qTYpOBlZ2o22JItl5Zg&dt=1626631954813&bpp=19&bdt=4584&idt=20&shv=r20210712&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D633715214113714e-22ee04a96ec900bf%3AT%3D1626631957%3ART%3D1626631957%3AS%3DALNI_MYf6pbcwW_6f1wi2MiMNCyAvqe-NQ&prev_fmts=358×90%2C360x300%2C0x0&nras=2&correlator=2102985348915&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=167830418.1626631953&ga_sid=1626631953&ga_hid=1593231223&ga_fc=0&u_tz=60&u_his=2&u_java=0&u_h=800&u_w=360&u_ah=800&u_aw=360&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=0&ady=2991&biw=360&bih=672&scr_x=0&scr_y=186&eid=31060973%2C31061745%2C31061690&oid=3&pvsid=1038040776845925&pem=594&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fm.facebook.com%2F&eae=0&fc=384&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C360%2C0%2C360%2C672%2C360%2C672&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=1152&bc=31&ifi=9&uci=a!9&btvi=1&fsb=1&xpc=uVJL9BaPgx&p=https%3A//igberetvnews.com&dtd=97
