Southeast armed group threatens Obi Cubana over ties with Abba Kyari

A southeast armed group, The Angry Vipers, has threatened to attack Anambra-born businessman and socialite, Obi Cubana.

A southeast armed group, The Angry Vipers, has threatened to attack Anambra-born businessman and socialite, Obi Cubana.

The group said the threat is connected to suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari attending the burial ceremony of Obi Cubana’s mother.

The burial, which was held at Oba, Anambra State in July 2021, was a lavish display of wealth as Obi Cubana buried his mother in grand style.

Several celebrities, businesses people and politicians turned out for the funeral, including Abba Kyari, with pictures of Obi Cubana and the police officer going viral.

Reacting to the presence of Kyari at the burial in a now-viral video, the armed group accused Cubana of working with the killers of Southeast youths.

The group said, “To the kings and chiefs in our land, you have decided to reduce yourselves to less than used sanitary pads. You are now being toiled about by uncircumcised Fulanis due to your idiocy and bribery. We, the Angry Vipers, are giving you 21 days to leave our land unless Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released.

“For Obi Cubana and co. who are closely working with the killers of our youths, you and your crew made sure that Abba Kyari returned to Anambra State, you will hear from us. From now onwards, we will put a stop to any form of tax directed to markets, road transports, such as bikes, vehicles and sundry, within the Biafra land. Henceforth, it shall be bloody, all hell shall be let loose. This very press statement is irrevocable.”
