Nigerian human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju has reacted to the alleged arrest of billionaire businessman, Obi Cubana by EFCC.
It was earlier reported that the club owner has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
Deji Adeyanju who in July 2021 condemned the businessman for the grand funeral ceremony he held for his late mum, took to his Twitter handle to react. According to him, he had warned Obi Cubana to be careful but people mistook his warnings for jealousy.
“When I told Obi Cubana to be careful, some people said I was jealous of him. It’s still much better to be arrested by EFCC than FBI. He should be celebrating that it’s EFCC. Calm down Obi. It’s not serious for now but it could get worse”. He tweeted.
Recall that after Obi Iyiegbu, the chairman of Cubana Group held a Mega Burial ceremony for his mother at his hometown, Oba, Anambra State, months ago, the activist warned that Obi Cubana didn’t need to draw so much attention to himself
In his words,
“If Obi Cubana had acted responsibly… he won’t need all these explanations now. Every time he’s traveling abroad, he will be watched as a “Person of Interest”. The financial & security world exchange intel. He didn’t need to draw so much attention to himself”.
