Nigerian business tycoon, Obi Iyiegbu popularly known as Obi Cubana was reportedly interrogated by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Thursday for allegedly connections with drug dealers.
Sources say that he was intensively interrogated for five hours by the agency on account of allegations linking him to three convicted drug dealers abroad.
