Nigerian socialite, Obi Iyiegbu popularly known as Obi Cubana has revealed that it is repugnant for the National Drug Enforcement Agency to link him to illegal narcotics cases.
Obi Cubana said this during an Instagram Live interview with media personality, Daddy Freeze, on Saturday.
The popular club owner was referring to his recent meeting with the NDLEA over his alleged involvement in illegal drug deals.
The PUNCH previously reported that Obi Cubana, who is the chairman of the Cubana group of companies, was grilled for around five hours on Thursday at the NDLEA’s Abuja headquarters before being released on bail and asked to return on a date. later.
It was reported that suspicious payments were made to Cubana’s account by three convicted drug traffickers from Malaysia, Nigeria and India.
Detailing his experience with the agency, the club owner noted that he felt so down for being on drugs
He said, “I was detained for four days and three nights. I didn’t feel bad because I knew the agency would do a thorough job and if I was cleared I would be released.
“There was no witch hunt, no one was chasing me. But to bind me to drugs? I have never felt so low. To me, that’s repulsive.
According to Obi Cubana, he had made a covenant with God that he would never support, invest in, or be part of any drug business.
“It’s something my kids could fall victim to,” the socialite added.
To clarify any charges, he said: ‘I have never been charged. I was never linked to anything, but they said someone had put money into my account, and I think the agency in question is very responsible.
“I know that ultimately they would make their findings public.”
