Was never released: Obi Cubana Spends Second Day With EFCC, Passport Seized

The passport of Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, a popular socialite and businessman who was arrested on Monday for alleged money laundering and tax fraud, has reportedly been confiscated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

It was learned that his travel document had been seized in order to prevent him from leaving the country while under investigation.

The anti-graft agency interrogated the Anambra-born social media influencer for the second day on Tuesday at its Abuja, Jabi headquarters, according to checks.

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.
