Oluwatodimu Ige, a Nigerian lawyer popularly known as Oga_thelawyer, noted that the court granted Cubana Chief Priest N10m bail based on certain conditions, which doesn't equate to being acquitted, as he compared it to Bobrisky's case.

In his words:

"Though Cubana Chiefpriest and Bobrisky were charged with similar offenses, the facts of their case are different and should not be viewed in the same light.

"The fear of EFCC": Video of Cubana Chiefpriest at a party spending money days after his court case

"Bobrisky pleaded guilty to the charge , thereby admitting that he actually committed the crime and the court had no option than to sentence him accordingly in line with the provision of the law .
"However, in the case of Cubana Chiefpriest, he has pleaded not guilty to the charge. This means he is contesting the charge/accusation of the EFCC and asking them to prove it because, beyond reasonable doubt, he actually mutilated the naira. Stemming from the above, the offense is bailable, and the court granted him bail per the conditions attached.
"Please note that this doesn't mean that he is free or has been acquitted .What this means is that there will be a trial where EFCC will present evidence to support their case and Cubana chief priest would also lead evidence to support his plea of not been guilty .He might also choose to file a no-case submission if he feels that EFCC has not laid a prima facie evidence establishing the charge against him."
