Obi Cubana still with EFCC – source



Anambra born socialite, Mr. Obinna Iyiegbu, better known as Obi Cubana, has continued to remained in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), sources said.

Obi Cubana was called for questioning at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja on Monday and the late night of the day, the socialite was still detained at the EFCC office.

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.

When contacted, the spokesman of the Commission, Wilson Uwujaren said he was yet to be briefed on the development.

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.
