Obi Cubana’s wife, Mrs. Ebele Iyiegbu, has opened up about her husband’s arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The Anambra State-born philanthropist, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, was arrested on Monday.
He was questioned on Monday at the EFCC headquarters over allegations of money laundering and tax fraud.
Reacting to the incident on her Instagram page, Mrs Iyiegbu described her husband as a hard-working and resilient man.
While pledging support for her husband, the entrepreneur said Jesus went through worse and prayed that God will turn everything around for his good.
Alongside a picture of him, she wrote: ”He is STRONG. He is RESILIENT.
“He is a HARD WORKER. He is a LEADER… and He is GREAT!
“I call him Nwachinemelu! Okpataozueora worldwide. Oji uno eme ogo.
“A man with a heart of Diamond. Nwoke ike! Odogwu m! We love you and we are solidly behind you. Even Jesus went through something worse than this so no stress”.
“The grace is overwhelming and it’s overflowing. God himself raised you. Again, I repeat…”Whom God has blessed, no man can curse” because he’s gonna turn everything around (the good, the bad and the ugly) for your good.”
Obi Cubana spent a second straight day in EFCC custody yesterday amidst reports that his passport had been seized by the anti-graft agency.
It was gathered that the seizure of his travel document was to prevent him from leaving the country while under investigation.
Checks revealed that the anti-graft agency quizzed the flamboyant social media influencer for the second day on Tuesday at its Abuja, Jabi headquarters.
A 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, Wilson Uwujaren, who confirmed that the suspect is still in custody, however, said he has no information on the seizure of his passport.
