Popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, otherwise known as Obi Cubana, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for money laundering.
The Anambra-born club owner, who arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, about noon today, is currently being interrogated by operatives of the commission.
Though allegations against the socialite were sketchy as of the time of filing this report, a source disclosed that his case borders on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
The source said, “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 EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was yet to be briefed on the development.
