The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has interrogated popular businessman Obi Cubana over transactions involving huge foreign currencies allegedly linked to the narcotic business.
It was gathered that Obi Cubana arrived at the premises of the NDLEA headquarters, Abuja on Thursday at about 9 am where he was grilled over suspicious payment made into his account by three convicted drug lords in India, Malaysia, and Nigeria.
According to a source: “Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9 am and responded to questions for some hours before he was granted bail at 2 pm
“There are suspicions that he may be a drug kingpin. Some convicted drug dealers paid funds into his account.
“We have been able to establish three of such payments. One of the persons that paid money into his account was convicted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; another one that was convicted in New Delhi, India; also paid money into his account while a third person was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, and convicted in 2017, also paid money into Cubana’s account.”
The hotel magnate was allowed to go home after about five hours of being subjected to intense interrogation at the NDLEA office to return at a future date with some documents that would be presented to the NDLEA.
