It appears the socialite and billionaire, Obi Cubana is now a character of interest for Nigerian law enforcement authorities. After wrestling with the EFCC last year, the year 2022 is not kick-starting well for Nigeria’s largest nightclub investor. The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency responsible for the ban on narcotics in Nigeria revealed, it has found out that Obi Cubana has web with some drug cartels.
The agency on Thursday in FCT, Abuja January 13, interrogated the chairman of Cubana group of companies, Obi Iyiegbu, widely known as Obi Cubana, for his alleged link to narcotics. According to The Punch newspaper, Obi Cubana was questioned for about five hours at the Abuja headquarters of the NDLEA before he was granted bail and asked to return at a future date.
Sources quoted in the report said suspicious payments were made into Cubana’s account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India. Operatives of the NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have now widened the probe into Cubana and his business network based on the premise that he may be involved in the drug business. The socialite was, however, allowed to go home in order to get some documents that would be presented to the NDLEA.
