Socialite Obinna Iyiegbu popularly known as Obi Cubana has landed in another trouble with the authorities, this time for an alleged link to the illegal narcotics business.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on Thursday grilled Obi Cubana and he was questioned for hours over an alleged link to some drug barons arrested by the agency.
“Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9am 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,” a source told Punch.
Obi Cubana was said to have been granted bail and asked to report to the NDLEA for more questioning at a later date.
In November 2021, Obi Cubana was arrested and taken to the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja over alleged money laundering and tax fraud. He was later released after spending three nights in their custody.
