Obi Iyiegbu, better known as Obi Cubana, a Nigerian businessman, was reportedly exposed to severe interrogation on Thursday, January 13, 2022, after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) summoned him over the aforementioned claims.
The Chairman of the Cubana group of firms was claimed to have been interrogated for five hours by NDLEA officers before being allowed to leave and return at a later date.
According to Punch, three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India put suspicious payments into Cubana’s account.
One of the sources said, “Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9 am and responded to questions for some hours before he was granted bail at 2 pm. There are suspicions that he may be a drug kingpin. Some convicted drug dealers paid funds into his account.
“We have been able to establish three of such payments. One of the persons that paid money into his account was convicted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; another one that was convicted in New Delhi, India; also paid money into his account while a third person that was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and convicted in 2017, also paid money into Cubana’s account.”
According to the source, the socialite was permitted to return home in order to get papers that would be given to the NDLEA.
You may recall that in July 2021, Cubana organized a magnificent burial for his mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Anambra State’s Idemili South local government area.
The ceremony, which drew politicians and celebrities, was marked by showy shows of riches, such as the giving of 400 cows to the socialite.
Four months after the funeral, officials from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) summoned Cubana for questioning regarding alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
He was, however, permitted to return home once the commission’s detectives had finished interviewing him.
