Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, the head of the Cubana, was interrogated by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Thursday, January 13 for his suspected involvement with drugs.
Obi Cubana was questioned for almost five hours at the NDLEA headquarters in Abuja, according to The Punch newspaper, before being given bail and instructed to return at a later date.
According to sources cited in the report from news outlet, three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India deposited questionable payments into Cubana’s account.
“Obi Cubana showed at the NDLEA office about 9 a.m. and answered questioning for several hours before being granted bail at 2 p.m. He is suspected of being a narcotics trafficker. Some convicted drug traffickers deposited money in 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.”
The NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have expanded their investigation into Cubana and his business network on the basis that he may be involved in the drug trade.
The socialite, on the other hand, was allowed to return home in order to get papers that would be presented to the NDLEA.
