Popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana has spent another day with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Obi Cubana was quizzed by the EFCC on Monday at its headquarters in Abuja for alleged money laundering.
Despite reports that he has been released, the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the suspect is still in custody.
A source told The Punch that the passport of the Anambra-born club owner has been seized to prevent him from traveling out of the country.
The source stated, “Obi Cubana has not been released, he is still having quality sessions with investigators over alleged money laundering running into millions of naira and tax fraud.
“He will be released when he has satisfactorily responded to all questions relating to his involvement in various illegal deals. As part of investigation, his travel document has been temporarily seized pending the conclusion of investigations.
The EFCC spokesman, however, said he has no information on the seizure of his passport.
