Socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu aka Obi Cubana, has remained in the custody of the EFCC, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, for the third day, on Wednesday, without any hint of when he would perfect his bail and leave the anti-graft agency in Abuja.
According to an EFCC official who pleaded anonymity, “There are many things for which the businessman is being interrogated and until he meets the conditions for his bail, the interrogation would continue,” the official said, without explaining what the issues linked to Cubana are.
Indications are however strong that the likely charges are those bordering on abuse of the Naira, tax fraud and money laundering based on what the source called ‘verified business transactions.’
The EFCC had, on Monday, invited the businessman to its head office to answer questions on sundry issues.
Obi Cubana came to the spotlight following the flamboyant burial he and his followers organized for his late mother earlier in 2021.
