The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency reportedly interrogated Nigerian businessman Obi Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, for his alleged involvement in the illegal narcotics trade (NDLEA).
The Chairman of the Cubana Group of Companies was quizzed at the NDLEA’s Abuja headquarters for over five hours on Thursday before being freed on bail and told to return at a later date.
Three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India allegedly deposited shady monies in Cubana’s account, according to sources.
On suspicion of being involved in the drugs trade, the NDLEA and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have widened their investigation into Cubana and his business network.
“Obi Cubana came to the NDLEA office about 9 a.m. and spent many hours answering questions before being granted bail at 2 p.m. He may be a drug lord, according to reports. Money was deposited into his account by several convicted narcotics dealers.
“Three of these payments have been established.” One of the people who paid money into his account was convicted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; another was convicted in New Delhi, India; and a third was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos and convicted in 2017, all of whom paid money into Cubana’s account,” according to a source.
