Popular Nigerian Socialite and businessman, Obi Iyiegbu popularly known as Obi Cubana is reportedly being investigated by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over an alleged money laundering and illicit drug trafficking.
According to multiple sources, the Chairman of Cubana group of companies was said to have been grilled by officials of the NDLEA for over five hours before he was asked to go home and return at a future date.
Reports also revealed that suspicious payments were made into Obi Cubana’s account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India.
Recall that the popular businessman and philanthropist was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last year over alleged money laundering after he organised a lavish funeral for his late mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Idemili South local government area of Anambra State.
Sources close to this online news platform, however said that the NDLEA invited Obi Cubana after it received a memo from two sister agencies who are currently probing the influential businessman.
“Some of the people working for him have been interrogated. Though they were through third parties, maybe as a clever cover-up, discreet investigation with collaboration with foreign intelligence partners have established some links,” one of the sources said.
Another source said, “Are you expecting them (NDLEA) or other security agencies to talk on ongoing investigations? You (media) are among those that complain about media trials, so let the investigation reach the appropriate stage when necessary information can be given to the public,” the official said.
