The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday arrested popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, better known as Obi Cubana, for interrogation over alleged money laundering and tax evasion.
The Anambra-born club owner who arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja on Monday afternoon, was seriously grilled by officials of the EFCC.
While the allegations against the socialite are still sketchy, a source disclosed that his case bordered on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
“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,” the source informed.
Meanwhile, Spokesman of the agency, Wilson Uwujaren, said he is yet to be briefed on the development.
Obi Cubana made headlines in July this year, when he held a lavish burial for his late mum in Oba, Anambra State, in which over 200 cows were reportedly slaughtered in an affluent display of wealth.
