On Thursday, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency interrogated socialite Obi Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, for his alleged involvement in the illegal narcotics trade.
According to Punch, Iyiegbu, the Chairman of the Cubana group of enterprises, was interrogated for around five hours at the NDLEA’s Abuja headquarters before being given bail and told to return at a later date.
Three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India deposited suspicious payments into Cubana’s account, according to reliable sources.
The NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have now expanded their investigation into Cubana and his business network on the suspicion that he is involved in the narcotics trade.
“Obi Cubana came to the NDLEA office about 9 a.m. and spent many hours answering questions before being granted bail at 2 p.m. He may be a drug lord, according to reports. Money was deposited into his account by several convicted drug dealers.”
“Three of these payments have been established.” One of the people who paid money into his account was convicted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; another was convicted in New Delhi, India; and a third was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos and convicted in 2017, all of whom paid money into Cubana’s account,” according to a source.
The socialite was given permission to return home in order to gather documents for presentation to the NDLEA.
