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) following an incident where he was seen spraying Naira notes in Lagos.

Shatta Bandle was spotted spraying Naira notes in public in a 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. Shatta Bandle’s act has become a subject of attention in the face of Nigeria’s stringent law.

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

Shatta Bandle has since expressed remorse for his actions, clarifying that his intent was not to violate any Nigerian laws.

He stated that he started by spraying dollars, but switched to naira when the dollars ran out, leading to the violation.

He remarked that he respects EFCC and Nigerian laws, referring to Nigeria as his next home.

“I apologise to you people; I didn’t come to break laws because Nigeria is my next home. I apologise to everybody especially EFCC to forgive me for what I have done,” he said.
