Ghanaian social media personality Firdaus Iddrisu, better known as Shatta Bandle, has apologized to the Nigerian public and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for spraying Naira notes in Lagos.

Shatta Bandle was seen spraying Naira notes in public in viral video during his recent visit to Nigeria for

 Mr. Ibu’s funeral on June 28.

Nigeria has strict regulations prohibiting the abuse of its currency, and Shatta Bandle’s act has received attention as a

 result of these stringent laws.

Earlier this year, in similar case, the EFCC arrested Nigerian celebrity Bobrisky for spraying cash at movie premiere, accusing him of currency tampering.

Shatta Bandle has since expressed regret for his actions, clarifying that he did not intend to violate any Nigerian laws.

He stated that he began by spraying dollars but switched to Naira when they ran out, resulting in the violation.

He stated that he respects the EFCC and Nigerian laws, and referred to Nigeria as his second home. “I apologize

to everyone; did not come to break the law because Nigeria is my next home. apologize

to everyone, especially the EFCC, and ask that they forgive me for what did,” he said.

 

According to the Naira mutilation law, anyone convicted of abusing a Naira note or tampering with a coin or note faces a six-month prison sentence, a fine of at least N50,000 (approximately US$37), or both.
