radually, it is becoming clearer why popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana is under the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports the EFCC as saying it did not arrest the Anambra State born businessman but that he voluntarily came to their office.
Sources in the EFCC have said Obi Cubana was invited on allegations of money laundering, tax evasion and abuse of the Naira in public places.
It was, however, not clear where Obi Cubana abused the Naira in public places, but the billionaire in the year threw a massive burial for his late mum during which Naira bills and other hard currencies rend the air.
TNG reports Obi Cubana arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, around noon on Monday, and is still at the commission at the time of filing this report.
However, the EFCC has said the billionaire would not be held for more than 48 hours.
“Obi Cubana came to our headquarters on Monday afternoon by himself. We did not arrest him. We extended an invitation to him two weeks ago.
“As we speak, he is being grilled by detectives over allegations of money laundering, tax evasion and abuse of the Naira.
“We will not hold him beyond 48 hours,” a source at the EFCC, who asked not to be named, told TNG.
