A Nigerian billionaire socialite, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana was on Thursday , again reportedly quizzed and grilled by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA for hours.
Obi Cubana had been questioned over alleged money laundering last year before he was released .
Again, on Thursday, he was said to have been invited and questioned for hours by the NDLEA, over alleged link to some drug barons arrested by the agency.
He was said to have been granted bail and asked to report to the NDLEA for more questioning at a later date.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that three
drug dealers arrested allegedly deposited money into the account of Obi Cubana and the NDLEA is trying to trace the link.
It was further gathered that the drug dealers were arrested in Malaysia, Nigeria and India and they reportedly paid money into Cubana’s account.
The billionaire socialite was reportedly seen at the NDLEA around 9.00am on Thursday and left around 2.00pm.
When contacted for his reaction, NDLEA spokesman, Femi Babafemi said he had nothing to say about the matter.
Obi Cubana had been in the news for sometime, after he hosted a lavish burial ceremony for his late mother last year with arrays of guests and dignitaries at the event.
Money flowed freely at the event. This led to his invitation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to investigate his source of wealth.
