Few months after he came into limelight following the lavish burial of his mother, socialite and entrepreneur, Obinna Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana has attracted the attention of Nigeria’s anti graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He was arrested and taken to the Jabi, Abuja headquarters of the anti-graft agency on Monday.

Officers of the anti-graft agency allegedly grilled Cubana over certain financial transactions said to be against the law.

“Obi Cubana is being questioned at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja. He arrived at the EFCC office around noon on Monday,” an official of the Commission said.

Although details of allegations against the Anambra-born tycoon were still sketchy, a source disclosed that his case borders on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.

When contacted, the spokesman of the Commission, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was yet to be briefed on the development.

Earlier in the year, Obi Cubana made headlines and trended on social media following a lavish burial ceremony for his late mother in the South East state.

Among other obscenities, more than 200 cows lost their lives on account of that burial.

Since that meteoric rise to fame, Cubana has featured in comedy skits and become a reference point in vulgarity at social gatherings, across the country.
