Popular businessman and socialite, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana has been allegedly arrested by Nigeria’s anti-graft agency known as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commision (EFCC).
A source with the agency reveals he was arrested over issues bothering on tax evasion and money laundering.
He was said to have arrived the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, at about noon on Monday and currently being interrogated by operatives of the commission.
Though allegations against the socialite were sketchy as of press time, a source disclosed that his case borders 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.”
Obi Cubana, who runs a chain of premium bars and nite clubs in Nigeria, became a media sensation in 2021 when the razzmatazz at his mum’s funeral in Oba, Anambra state, became a trending topic on all social media platforms in Nigeria.
