Nightlife entrepreneur, Obi Cubana has reacted on social media hours after being grilled by the operatives of Economics and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
The billionaire businessman didn’t look fazed by the arrest as he declared himself the man of the year.
Obi also appreciated his friends, followers and colleagues who drummed support for him when he was arrested.
The businessman was reportedly arrested on Monday by the anti-graft agency over allegations of money laundering and tax evasion.

The post generated over 16,000 comments within one hour as his friends and supporters expressed excitement over his release.
Although, EFCC, officially has yet to speak on why it arrested the businessman. Iyiegbu was also silent in that regard.
But speaking with BBC pidgin on Tuesday, that anti-graft agency said the businessman was not arrested as widely reported by many newspapers.
The EFCC stated that the socialite was invited two weeks ago but only showed up yesterday, 1st November.
“We did not arrest Obi Cubana. We had invited him over to our office two weeks ago, which he only showed up yesterday around 11am in our office at Wuse Zone 6 Abuja”
They also noted that they were investigating Obi Cubana for evasion of tax by the Cubana Group with money laundering and abuse of the naira in public places.
It wasn’t clear if the abuse of naira charges was related to the spraying of money that happened during the burial of his mother this year.
Obi Cubana made headlines a few months ago when he buried his mum in a lavish and ostentatious manner.
He trended on social media following a lavish burial ceremony for his late mother in the South East state.
