Obi Iyiegbu, a Nigerian billionaire socialite popularly known as Obi Cubana, is in trouble after being questioned and interrogated for hours by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
The NDLEA was claimed to have questioned Obi Cubana for hours about an alleged relationship to several drug lords apprehended by the agency.
He was reportedly given bail and told to return to the NDLEA for further interrogation at a later date.
Three drug dealers apprehended allegedly placed money into Obi Cubana’s account, and the NDLEA is attempting to trace the relationship.
The drug dealers were apprehended in Malaysia, Nigeria, and India, and they allegedly deposited funds into Cubana’s bank account.
A top source told reporters that the billionaire socialite was seen at the NDLEA around 9.00am on Thursday and left around 2.00pm.
When contacted for his reaction, NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi told newsmen that he had nothing to say about the matter.
He simply said “No comment.”
Obi Cubana has been in the headlines for a while after hosting a grandiose burial ceremony for his late mother last year, with a large number of visitors and dignitaries in attendance.
At the celebration, money flowed freely. This prompted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC, to examine his source of riches.
