FAKE News: EFCC Disowns Trending Cubana Photograph

By Braxton Ilobah

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), has disclaimed a trending photograph in the social media purported to have been taken by socialite Obi Cubana in the premises of the Commission, crowded by people described as staff of the EFCC.

In a statement on Friday, the Commission’s spokesman; Mr. Wilson Uwujaren said “the picture captioned: EFCC Crew poses for quick photograph with billionaire socialite and businessman, Obi Cubana, was not taken in EFCC facility and the people therein are unknown to the Commission.”

The Commission has therefore warned members of the public not to be “misled by another mischievous stunt by Cubana’s publicists.”

It will be recalled that Obi Cubana was arrested by operatives of the Commission on alleged offences of Naira abuse, Tax Fraud and Money Laundering. He has been in EFCC

custody pending when he would perfect his bail conditions.
