Popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, was interrogated by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over alleged money laundering on Monday.
Obi Cubana came into the limelight just before his mother's lavish burial ceremony in July.
The Anambra-born club owner, who arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, at about noon on Monday, was undergoing interrogation by the operatives of the commission as of the time of filing this report.
Indications regarding his arrest suggest that his case bordered on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
The source said, “Obi Cubana was arrested and brought to the EFCC headquarters on Monday afternoon over allegations of money laundering and tax fraud. He is being grilled by detectives as we speak.”
After his mother's burial, many became suspicious as to the source of his wealth and of course, the anti-graft agency was aware too.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
