On November 1st afternoon, the businessman was reportedly called in for questioning by Abuja EFCC operatives over alleged money laundering and tax fraud. He was, however, detained, interrogated, and his passport got seized. The is coming months after the popular socialite and nightlife entrepreneur became the centre of attention following the lavish show of wealth during his mother’s burial in Oba, Anambra State, on the 15th of July this year.
Indeed, just for the burial alone, the socialite, also known as Gods Preferred son, got over 500 livestock from friends and family and killed over 200 cows for the one-week long ceremony. Obi Cubana also splashed on a diamond-encrusted chain worth 40 million Naira just for the ceremony and pledged 300 million Naira to Youth development in the state. Guest at the event put the entire Anambra on a standstill. Many arrived in private jets. The Cubana CEO and his friends turned the burial venue into a money football field as they sprayed money like paper and used bundles of both local and hard foreign currency to play football. Interestingly, before the show-stopper event, Obi Cubana was literally unknown to the general public, causing many to tag him as a rebranded Yahoo boy. In the same vein, they called on the EFCC to investigate his source of wealth despite evidence that the socialite is a legitimate hustler.
However, many are not convinced the EFCC is working on intelligence reports. Do most people believe Obi Cubana’s arrest may have to do with his ethnicity as an Igboman or the upcoming Anambra Gubernatorial election? Could any of this be true? #ObiCubana #ObiCubanaarrest #ObiCubanaandEFCC
