NDLEA questions Obi Cubana over alleged link to drug business.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) investigated Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, the chairman of the Cubana group of companies, on Thursday, January 13th, 2022, about his alleged links to narcotics.
After a five-hour interrogation at the NDLEA headquarters in Abuja, Obi Cubana was granted bail and told to return at a later date, according to reports.
Cubana’s investigation is said to be prompted by suspicious payments placed into his account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India, according to sources quoted by The PUNCH.
Regardless, some reports claim that Cubana and his business network are being investigated on suspicion of being involved in the narcotics trade.
One of the sources said, “Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9am and responded to questions for some hours before he was granted bail at 2pm. There are suspicions that he may be a drug kingpin. Some convicted drug dealers paid funds into his account.
“We have been able to establish three of such payments. One of the persons that paid money into his account was convicted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; another one that was convicted in New Delhi, India; also paid money into his account while a third person that was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and convicted in 2017, also paid money into Cubana’s account.”
