The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly quizzed popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, a.k.a. Obi Cubana, for alleged tax fraud and money laundering.
It was learnt that the Anambra-born club owner arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, at about noon on Monday and is currently being interrogated by operatives of the commission.
“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 Punch quoted a source as saying.
When contacted, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, said he was yet to be briefed about the development.
Cubana made headlines in July when he hosted a talk-of-the-town funeral for his mother in Oba, Anambra State.
