Controversial Nigerian singer Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, has made a plea to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in light of the prosecution of some celebrities.

During a recent Instagram live session on Tuesday, Portable asked the anti-graft agency to forgive him if they had any evidence of him mishandling the Naira.

He clarified that his intention was never to damage the Naira, but rather to distribute money to help the public.

Portable emphasized his respect for authority and promised not to repeat such an offense.

The singer, known for the song ‘Zazoo Zeh,’ also urged his followers to open bank accounts. He mentioned that he will now be sending money to his supporters and those in need through bank transfers.

He wrote, “I use my money to build love. I used my money to build relationships. Did I spray money at the club? I was spraying money in the area where they need me.

“I didn’t deface the naira; I help a lot of people, After God na Government, Please forgive me if you have videos of me spraying money, no more spraying of money.”

Allub Times reports that socialite  Pascal Okechukwu, also known as Cubana Chief Priest, pleaded not guilty to charges of Naira abuse on Wednesday, days after another popular figure, Idris Okuneye, known as Bobrisky, was handed six months jail term for a similar crime.
