NDLEA interrogates Obi Cubana on alleged drug links

Some reports have suggested that Cubana and his business network are being scrutinized over accusations of being linked to the illicit drug trade.


An interrogation by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) took place on Thursday, January 13, 2022, in which the chairman of the Cubana group of companies, Obi Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, was quizzed about his alleged involvement with drugs.

After a five-hour questioning at the NDLEA headquarters in Abuja, Obi Cubana was released on bail and told to reappear at a later date, according to reports.

Cubana’s investigation seems to be prompted by questionable payments deposited into his account by three known drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India, according to reports published by The PUNCH.

Nevertheless, some reports have suggested that Cubana and his business network are being scrutinized on accusations of being linked in the illicit drug trade.

According to Punch, a source said

Obi Cubana arrived at the NDLEA office around 9am and responded to questions for some hours before he was granted bail at 2pm.

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 that was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and convicted in 2017, also paid money into Cubana’s account.
