Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, Professor Chidi Odinkalu, has said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, does not have the powers to prosecute Naira abusers.

He berated the anti-graft agency for arresting crossdresser Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju (alias Bobrisky), who was convicted and jailed for six months for the offense.

According to him, spraying of the Naira does not fall within the Commission’s prosecutorial purview.

“The law that establishes the EFCC defines ‘economic and financial crimes’ to mean ‘non-violent criminal and illicit activity committed with the objectives of earning wealth illegally either individually or in a group or organized manner thereby violating existing legislation governing the economic activities of government and its administration,” Odinkalu stated.

Dumb skull. To prove to us you're a real human right activist.
Abuse the Naira. Do the video and send it to EFCC.
If nothing was done to you. I swear, I'll call you Odogwu
