Obi Cubana was finally released on, Thursday, November 4, 2021. The above was confirmed by Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s spokesman, in a message to media outlets.
“He has been released,” he wrote in a short text message.
The Cubana group honcho is not seemingly basking in his freedom as can be evidenced by a video making the rounds on social media. In the video, Obi Cubana can be seen flanked by friends celebrating his release including billionaire businessman, Ayiri Emami, amongst others.
Before his release yesterday, false reports had made the rounds earlier in the week stating that he had been released.
On Tuesday evening, a close friend and associate of the popular businessman stated that he had been released. The friend identified as Onwumelu Valentine made this known in a post shared on Instagram.
“Thank u Jesus!! @obi_cubana is free. We gat Jesus!!! . Dis Dance is for all my fans. I love u all,” he wrote.
