Spray Money In Parties And Go To Jail – CBN Warns Nigerians
The Central Bank of Nigeria has warned party-goers against spraying money in events because anyone caught will be sentenced to imprisonment.
Isaac Okorafor, spokesman of the CBN, stated this after a meeting of the Bankers Committee in Lagos, on Thursday, noting that mobile courts would be deployed to try those found culpable.
His words: “If a celebrant is dancing and you spray him/her, you may go to jail from the party venue because the law enforcement agents will be there, waiting to arrest you.
“It is the duty of law enforcement agencies to catch offenders and take them to court. Our collaboration with the police will intensify as we move to implement the mobile court for offenders.
“If you want to give, put the money in an envelop, and give it the celebrant. Let’s know that anybody hawking and writing on the naira will face six months in jail or N50,000 or both.”
