NDLEA Drills Obi Cubana For Alleged Drug Link
Popular Nigerian socialite, Obi Cubana is being drilled by the NDLEA over alleged link to drugs.
The drug agency broadened the probe into Cubana and his business network based on the premise that he may be involved in the drug business.
According to Punch Newspaper, Iyiegbu, who is the Chairman, Cubana group of companies, 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.
Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9am and responded to questions for some hours before he was granted bail at 2 pm. There are suspicions that he may be a drug kingpin. Some convicted drug dealers paid funds into his account.
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.
The socialite was allowed to go home in order to get some documents that would be presented to the NDLEA.
Cubana who has been in the nightclub business since 2006, grabbed international headlines last July when he organized a lavish funeral for his mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Idemili South local government area of Anambra State.
