Father Stephen Crossan, 37, who admitted that he didn’t have an ‘issue with drugs’, was seen using a £10 ($14) note to inhale the illicit substance during a party at his house located on church grounds after a night of drinking.

“I shouldn’t before snorting the white powder off a plate while talking to a friend,” the vicar of Christ could be heard saying in the video.

Speaking to The Sun Newspaper’s Ruth Warrander, after the tape was made public, Crossan admitted to the affair but maintained he did not have a problem with substance abuse.

He said: “It was just the one night and that was it. I do not have an issue with drugs,”

As for the Nazi paraphernalia adorning the priest’s apartment, one source who spoke with the British-based tabloid said that they were shocked by the display.

“The house was lovely but we were stunned to see the Nazi stuff. It was all over the house. At one point Stephen put on a cap and did the Nazi salute.

“It’s shocking. He’s supposed to be an upstanding member of society.”

The source said that the footage was shot at the end of a two day bender after which the priest invited a group of people back to his home.

When asked about the Nazi decor gracing his parish apartment, Father Crossan, who has worked as a prison chaplain, told the paper:

“I’m no Nazi. I collect historical stuff. There’s stuff there from every country.”

The league leaders lost 1-2 to a spirited Lyon side, with Maxwell Cornet and Sergi Darder scoring for the hosts.

Lucas Moura was only able to get a consolation goal for the away side, which meant their unbeaten streak had finally ended at 36 games.

The loss wouldn’t hurt PSG much however, as they are still 23 points ahead of second placed AS Monaco, and could win the league with only a few more games.

Ronaldo had since clarified that he was talking about injuries and not player performance on the pitch, but that didn’t stop Mestre from taking a shot at him.

Mestre told Movistar : “Our team’s players would never say what Cristiano said. The club monitors a lot of things before signing players. Honestly, I could not imagine one of our players saying what Cristiano said.”

Foreign currency speculators and economic analysts, who unleashed an unprecedented attack against the Naira two weeks ago have gotten their fingers burnt severely on Wednesday, as the country’s currency staged a major recovery, rising to ₦300 to a dollar at the parallel market, compared to ₦375 at which it sold on Monday and ₦310 on Tuesday.

Naira Stages Major Recovery Against The Dollar

The local currency, which fell to an all-time low of about ₦400 against the greenback on the parallel market last week was predicted to plummet further to ₦450-₦500 per dollar by the end of this week.

However, the Naira defied expectations, climbing to as high as ₦305 to the dollar at some parallel market points in Lagos on Tuesday afternoon, before settling at ₦310.

While currency analysts attributed the significant gain on the parallel market to excess supply of the greenback in the market, forex dealers said the losses recorded by the local currency in recent weeks were “artificial and fuelled by the activities of currency speculators.”

Other forex dealers averred that the Naira might gain further and settle around ₦260 against the greenback at the parallel market.

“The dollar supply in the market is reducing; however, the naira may gain further significantly before reaching equilibrium,” a BDC operator in Agege, Lagos, Mr. Rotimi Lawal, said.

The local currency began its recovery after President Muhammadu Buhari had reiterated its stance not to devalue the Naira on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN, yesterday faulted individuals and groups calling for the devaluation of the nation’s currency, saying they were not sincere as devaluing the Naira would create more problems for the country.

It was gathered that the demand for dollars to pay for Chinese goods was part of the reason for the latest decline.

“You know China had been on its one month annual holidays. But they resumed work on Monday, and people have to complete payment for goods ordered before the holidays,” a BDC operator said.

They had made 30% down payment to order the goods and they now have to pay the 70% balance otherwise they will lose the 30%.

That is why they are desperate and ready to buy dollars at any rate. Meanwhile supply is scarce and those who have dollars are not willing to sell because they might also need the currency soon”.

The rapid fall of the Naira had been traced to the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) restriction policy on the weekly sale to Bureau de Changes with dollars on January 12th, 2016.
