Here Are The Reasons Cubana Chief Priest Was Granted Bail But Bobrisky Sent To Prison



cubana and bobrisky prison

The social media personality and lawyer by the name Ridwan Oke has shared a post on his handle shedding more light on the reasons Cubana Chief Priest who pleaded ‘not guilty’ to alleged Naira abuse was granted 10 million Naira bail, whereas cross-dresser Bobrisky was sentenced to 6 months in prison for the same crime.

The post was to help educate the general public on the reasons why both cases were handled differently. Read his submission below

‘I see people quoting this tweet with misinformation and outright ignorance. 

1. Bobrisky pleaded GUILTY when he was arraigned, Cubana Chief Priest pleaded NOT GUILTY, hence, the procedure is different. 

2. Bobrisky was sentenced to prison for 6 months without an option of fine having pleaded guilty. He admitted that he was wrong which made his/her process faster

3. Cubana Chief Priest was granted Bail because he pleaded NOT GUILTY and that means the EFCC now have to prove that he’s guilty before the court can sentence him to prison, fine him or both. 

4. The 10M Naira bail condition is not a fine. In fact, he doesn’t have to pay it unless ordered by the court or where he jumps bail. 

5. Granting bail for such offence is in line with Section 36 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 ( As amended). 

6. In short, Cubana Chief Priest may still go to prison if the EFCC is able to prove the allegations against him.”
