Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, has spoken on his recent encounter with The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), saying that it was a “sad” experience to be linked with drugs as “”narcotics/drugs to me is repulsive.”
Obi Cubana was on Thursday questioned by operatives of the NDLEA over his alleged links to the illegal narcotic business through alleged suspicious payments into his account by three convicted drug lords in India, Malaysia and Nigeria.
Iyiegbu, who is the Chairman, Cubana Group of Companies, was 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.
But on Saturday, Obi Cubana, in an Instagram live with popular On-Air Personality, Daddy Freeze, narrated his ordeals with the anti-drug agency.
According to the popular socialite, “in life, in growth, people must face certain challenges. And I am facing mine right now. But I think the most painful of them, you see I was in detention for four days and three nights. I didn’t feel bad because I knew the agency will do a thorough job and if I am cleared I’ll be let to go.
“There was no witch hunting. Nobody was after me. I’m sure the agencies will do their job very well I’m sure and I have no doubt about that. But to link me to drugs, I have never felt so low. I wasn’t linked, they later said that…
“My own is that anything that has to do with narcotics/drugs to me is repulsive. It is something I have made a covenant with my God, with my children, with my unborn generation, that I will never support, I will never invest, I will never be part of it.
“I will never and I still made the covenant before everybody on this live. So, the thought of even that invitation, do you understand what I am saying?
“Because this is something we fight every day, something that destroys generation. This is something my children can be a victim of so no human being that has brain.
“I wasn’t accused. I was never linked to anything. But they said that somebody paid money into my account which I believe that the agency in question also is a very responsible one. And I know that at the end of the day, whenever they are done with their investigation, it will be made known to the public. And that’s the much I want to talk about it, please. It’s a sad phase. I don’t want to go or discuss but I just want to say it and then let’s talk about giving.”
