The interrogation of a businessman and socialite, Mr. Obinna Iyiegbu (aka Obi Cubana) by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), continued yesterday even as uncertainty surrounded the possibility of an administrative bail.
New Telegraph reports that the popular businessman, who arrived the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja at about noon on Monday, is being interrogated on allegations bordering on money laundering and tax fraud. He was still being held by the Commission, as at the time of filling this report (6:30pm) yesterday.
A source who spoke in confidence with this newspaper, said: “He has not been released yet. As I speak to you now, he is still with us at the Commission’s headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.”
Asked if Mr Iyiegbu will spend another night in custody, the source said: “You know things like this, you can’t predict. But he is still with us.”
