According to a top EFCC source, the commission will try Cubana on these crimes but it won’t be now.
“The trial of the businessman and socialite is not taking place immediately. We will put all things in place before the prosecution begins,” the official hinted.
When asked why the trial is not commencing yet, the source said the EFCC is taking their time to build a strong case against the night-life promoter.
Obi Cubana made headlines in July this year when he buried his mother with a stupendous show of wealth and affluence.
The burial of his mother Ezinne Uyiegbu tagged by many as “event of the year” was the talk of the entire country for weeks.
