EFCC arrests Obi Cubana for money laundering, tax fraud

Popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for money laundering.

The Anambra-born club owner, who arrived the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, at about noon on Monday, is currently being interrogated by operatives of the commission.

Though allegations against the socialite were sketchy as of press time, a source disclosed that his case borders on alleged money laundering and tax fraud.

  1. Please don’t scroll without reading this. Trust me, I’m clinging on thin hope, believing that God will use someone on this platform to save me…I can make a long emotional and pitiful story of my present situation, but considering that the whole country is suffering, it would rather be insensitive of me to make my situation seem any worse than others. I shamefully wrote this because not in a thousand years did I believe I would ever become an online begger. I believe in personal hustle but to be honest I have been very unfortunate with my search for jobs and gigs. Life has really been a struggle. This is exam period and I have been unable to concentrate due to the hunger, I can’t even read for 5min without my stomach making me uncomfortable. For some days now I have either had very little or nothing to eat at all. Because of this intense hunger, even to sleep has become a serious challenge for me, plus I wake up so hungry it feels like my stomach wants to force its way out and fend for itself. I am void of assistance from family and friends, as they all are facing their own struggles, some even maybe worse than mine. Trust me I have tried to get a job, but it’s not as easy as it may sound sometimes especially because of my school schedules. This hunger has been a serious torture, I have lost so much weight Everytime I look into a mirror, I almost shed tears. I’m using this medium to seek help from anyone who can afford to help me, with anything, nothing is too little. As you help me today, I am hopeful that God would replenish you in a multiple folds. As you answer my cry for help, I pray he never lets you cry for help.08119072323 ..acct no 6019575254 fidelity bank 🙏

  2. It is done everywhere in the World. You show off your wealth and the whole world start to watch you. Don’t blame EFCC. Blame Cubana. He is rich but when you start to lavish money like that, you are bound to be scrutinised until you can prove the source of your wealth.
