Obi Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, a Nigerian businessman, was reportedly exposed to extensive questioning by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Thursday, January 13, 2022, in connection with the aforementioned claims.

The Chairman of the Cubana Group of Companies was reportedly interrogated for five hours by NDLEA personnel before being sent home and requested to return at a later date.

According to authorities quoted by Punch, three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India deposited suspicious payments into Cubana’s account.

One of the sources said, “Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9 am and responded to questions for some hours before he was granted bail at 2 pm. 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.”

According to the source, the socialite was permitted to return home to gather papers that would be given to the NDLEA.

In July 2021, Cubana organized a grandiose burial for his mother, Ezinne Iyiegbu, in Oba, Anambra State’s Idemili South local government area.

The celebration, which drew politicians and celebrities, was marked by showy displays of wealth, as exemplified by the socialite’s contribution of 400 cows.

Officials from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invited Cubana for questioning four months after the funeral ceremony, allegedly for money laundering and tax fraud.

He was, however, permitted to return home when the commission’s detectives had finished interviewing him.
