Nigerian socialite, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, has revealed that he was in the detention of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for four days and three nights.
Obi Cubana stated this on Saturday while speaking on his recent encounter with the NDLEA over his alleged involvement in illegal drug deals.
The Chairman of Cubana group of companies, in an interview with media personality, Daddy Freeze, said he felt so low to be linked with the illegal narcotics business.
He said, “I was in detention for four days and three nights. I didn’t feel bad because I knew the agency would do a thorough job and if I am cleared, I’d be let go.
“There was no witch-hunting, nobody was after me. But to link me to drugs? I’ve never felt so low. To me, it’s repulsive.”
“This is something that my children could be victims of,” the socialite added.
Clearing the air about any accusation, he said, “I was never accused. I was never linked to anything but they said somebody paid money into my account, and I believe that the agency in question is a very responsible one.
“I know that at the end of the day, they would make their findings public.”
Obi Cubana was on Thursday grilled for about five hours at the Abuja headquarters of the NDLEA before he was granted bail and asked to return at a future date.
It was reported that suspicious payments were made into Cubana’s account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India.
