US-based actress Georgina Onuoha has called out the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over the arrest of Nigerian billionaire and socialite Obi Cubana.
In a post shared on Instagram, Georgina questioned the operative over the arrest of Obi Cubana while Abba Kyari and former Lagos State Governor Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who she described as a bullion criminal is walking free.
The actress opined that the current administration is eager to silence every Igbo man and young and hardworking Nigeria who has no hand down wealth from their parents.
Georgina Onuoha also questioned the EFCC on how many Nigerians listed in the United Arab Emirates for sponsoring terrorism and named in the Pandora papers leaked for laundering schemes and offshore tax haven have been arrested.
She wrote: EFCC can arrest Obi Cubana but Abba Kyari is free. Tinubu the bullion van king is free, wonderful one in Nigeria and its corrupt system. You are arresting Obi Cubana, yet Abba Kyari is walking freely. Oribu, sorry Tinubu, the bullion criminal is walking free? I weep for my country.
The urge to silence every Igbo man and every young and working Nigerian who has no hand on down wealth from their parents in a God-forsaken nation is real.
Dear EFCC @officialefcc, You are yet to arrest prominent Nigerians credibly involved in financial crimes. Stop your selective crime justice. The United Arab Emirates listed many Nigerian officials sponsoring terrorism; you are yet to arrest them. Why?
Many prominent Nigerians were named in the Pandora papers leaked for money laundering schemes and offshore tax haven; you are yet to arrest or investigate them. Please, as concerned citizens, we will like to know why you don’t arrest
or invite people for credible financial crimes for interrogation?
This smells like a witch hunt of a man; you can’t stand his influence. Need I say more? He is Igbo. How dare he be young, rich, famous or influential? Ndi ara. We are waiting for your unbiased report on this matter. The double standards and animosity towards an average easterner are cringe-worthy.
The Anambra-born club owner, who arrived at the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja, at noon on Monday, was interrogated by operatives of the commission.
Though allegations against the socialite were sketchy as of press time, a source disclosed that his case borders alleged money laundering and tax fraud.
Since then, several reactions have been trailing on arrest by many Nigerians and friends of the socialite.
