Gunmen Threaten Obi Cubana over Abba Kyari, Demands 21 days ultimatum to release Nnamdi Kanu

Socialite and Billionaire Philanthropist, Obinna Iyiegbu popularly known as Obi Cubana has made the headlines again, this time for a rather frightening reason.

Obi Cubana received a threat message from a heavily armed group, which identified itself as ‘Angry Vipers’. They issued the threat in a viral video stating that Obi Cubana committed an offence by inviting ex-Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, to his mother’s burial held in Anambra in July.

They referred to Kyari as “the killers of our youth” and accused Cubana of working closely with him. They threatened that Cubana will hear from them and all hell shall be let loose.

Not stopping there, the group also gave the leaders in Southeast 21 days ultimatum to ensure the release of Nnamdi Kanu. And until their request is met, they put a stop to any form of tax directed to markets, road transports, such as bikes, vehicles and sundry, within the Biafra land. 

The Angry Vipers said;

“To the kings and chiefs in our land, you have decided to reduce yourselves to less than used sanitary pads. You are now being toiled about by uncircumcised Fulanis due to your idiocy and bribery. We, the Angry Vipers, are giving you 21 days to leave our land unless Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released.

For Obi Cubana and co. who are closely working with the killers of our youths, you and your crew made sure that Abba Kyari returned to Anambra State, you will hear from us. From now onwards, we will put a stop to any form of tax directed to markets, road transports, such as bikes, vehicles and sundry, within the Biafra land. Henceforth, it shall be bloody, all hell shall be let loose. This very press statement is irrevocable.”

Obi Cubana was recently arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and detained for over 48 hours, for alleged money laundering and tax fraud.

Obi Cubana got into the spotlight after he held a lavish funeral for his mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Anambra State in July.

The celebration of life sparked reactions after the much display of wealth, leading him to give his grass-to-grace stories in interviews, narrating how he started in a one-room apartment as a fresh graduate undergoing the mandatory national youth service in Abuja in 1999

He told BBC Pidgin that he started as an estate agent and made his first N1 million through a house furnishing contract he got at that time.
