Nigerian billionaire and socialite, Obi Cubana whose real name is Obi Iyiegbu has shared what he experienced during his time in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
He described the experience in the custody of the agency as one of the challenges one must face in life and in growth.
Anaedoonline.ng reports Cubana made the details public during an Instagram live chat with On-Air Personality, Daddy Freeze.
It will be recalled that this online medium reported that the business mogul was grilled at the NDLEA headquarters in Abuja over suspicious payments made into his account by three convicted drug dealers from Malaysia, Nigeria, and India.
Narrating his ordeal, the businessman revealed that he was in the custody of the NDLEA for four days and three nights.
He went further to deny any form of involvement in drug dealing or drug abuse saying he has made a covenant with God never to get involved in such.
Cubana added that though it’s a sad phase for him and doesn’t want to talk about it, he believes the NDLEA will do a thorough job and make the results of their findings public.
He disclosed further that the invitation wasn’t about drugs directly but about a certain amount of money paid into his account.
In his words: “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.”
