The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said that it is interrogating popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, a.k.a Obi Cubana.
Although the details of his arrest had yet to be unravelled as of the time of filing this report, a source said that his arrest was hinged on alleged money laundering.
Obi Cubana, Anambra-born club owner, reportedly got to the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, around noon on Monday.
He was still at the Commission’s headquarters at 10:11pm, on Monday.
“Obi Cubana was 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,” a source was quoted as saying.
The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said he had yet to be briefed on the development.
Public attention was drawn to Obi Cubana in July when he hosted a lavish burial for his mother in Oba, Anambra State, with over 200 cows reportedly slaughtered for entertainment.
