Cubana grilled by NDLEA over alleged links to drug barons

Less than a year that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of money laundering, popular socialite and philanthropist, Obi Cubana, is now at the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) over his alleged link to drug trafficking.

According to multiple sources, the famous socialite, who was grilled on Thursday at the NDLEA headquarters in Abuja, was said to have been involved in illicit drugs including Cannabis Sativa, Tramadol among others.

The sources said having received an intelligence from two sister agencies who have been on the trail of Cubana, the NDLEA invited the influential businessman on the ground that he allegedly received suspicious money from three convicted drug dealers from India, Malaysia and Nigeria.

One of the sources was quoted by Daily Trust to have said: “Some of the people working for Cubana have been interrogated. Though they were through third parties, maybe as a clever cover-up, discreet investigation with collaboration with foreign intelligence partners have established some links.”


According to Daily Trust, the spokesman of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, simply said, “no comment” when contacted to confirm the development.

Meanwhile, Iyiegbu, who is also the chairman of Cubana Group of Companies, was grilled for many hours at the Abuja headquarters of the NDLEA before he was granted bail and asked to return at a future date.
