The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a socialite Obinna Iyiegbu, better known as Obi Cubana.
Obi Cubana is being questioned at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja. He arrived at the EFCC office around noon on Monday.
Although details of allegations against the Anambra-born tycoon are still sketchy, a source told Channels Television that his case borders on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
Earlier in the year, Obi Cubana made headlines and trended on social media following a lavish burial ceremony for his late mother in the South-East state.
His meteoric rise to fame has also seen him feature in comedy skits.
