Popular nightclub owner, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged money laundering and tax evasion.
The Anambra-born entrepreneur who set tongues wagging recently after a lavish party to celebrate the burial ceremony of his mother, in Oba, Anambra State, arrived the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, Monday afternoon, and continued to undergo interrogation until late.
A source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the suspect was likely to spend the night at the EFCC.
Though allegations against the socialite were sketchy as of press time, the source revealed that Cubana’s case bordered on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
“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 source disclosed.
The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was yet to be briefed on the development.
