Actress and cosmetologist Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin, popularly known as Simisola Gold, has been grilled by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly abusing the redesigned naira notes.

The offence is contrary to Section 21 (5) of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN Act, 2007.

Simisola Gold was arrested by operatives of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Fraud Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on Wednesday along Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, following intelligence report.

The 31-year-old was arrested after the video of her spraying and stepping on the newly redesigned naira notes at a party surfaced online.

In the viral video, she was also seen flaunting wads of the new naira notes.

She was subsequently handed over to the EFCC on Thursday for further investigations.

Items recovered from her at the point of arrest include a Range Rover and iPhone mobile devices.

The EFCC said she will be charged to court once investigations have been concluded.
