OBI CUBANA COULD BE A DRUG BARON, SAY NDLEA AS THE AGENCY ARRESTS THE SOCIALITE

OBI CUBANA COULD BE A DRUG BARON, SAY NDLEA AS THE AGENCY ARRESTS THE SOCIALITE

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has quizzed the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cubana Group of Companies Limited, Chief Dr. Obinna Oyiegbu, otherwise known as Obi Cubana, for his alleged link to the illegal narcotic business.

 

The multibillionaire socialite was grilled for about five hours at the Abuja headquarters of the NDLEA before he was granted bail and asked to return at a future date.

 

According to very reliable sources, suspicious payments were made into the multibillionaire’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.

 

“We have been able to establish three of such payments. One of the persons that paid money into his account was convicted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; another one that was convicted in New Delhi, India; also paid money into his account while a third person that was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and convicted in 2017, also paid money into Cubana’s account,” said a source.

 

It can be recalled that Obi Cubana, who has been in the nightclub business since 2006, grabbed international headlines last July when he organised a lavish funeral for his mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Idemili South local government area of Anambra State.
