The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) is reported to have questioned Mr. Obi Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, for his alleged link to illicit drug business.
It was gathered that the socialite was interrogated for many hours yesterday at the agency’s headquarters before he was allowed to go home but asked to return at a future date.
A source revealed that suspicious payments were made into Cubana’s account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria and India.
Consequently, the source said operatives of the NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) widened the probe into Cubana and his business network based on the premise that he may be involved in the drug trafficking.
According to the source, there is a strong suspicion that Cubana may be into drug trafficking as some convicted drug dealers paid funds into his account.
The source added that the EFCC was able to establish three of such payments.
He said one of the persons that paid money into Cubana’s 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 the Cubana’s account.
He said Cubana was granted a temporary in order to get some documents which would be presented to the NDLEA.
