The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), AbdulRasheed Bawa, said that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is under investigation
“You asked me a question earlier about the pre-investigation arrest, and now you’re saying why we didn’t arrest Tinubu? Why didn’t you just say ‘arrest him’? “Bawa said in an exclusive interview published on Sunday by ThisDay.
” The investigation is ongoing.
“If you are Investigating matters doesn’t end in a day. “
The fortune of the former Lagos state governor has been a major crank of conspiracy theories for more than a decade.
Tinubu is accused of that Alpha Beta Consulting’s finances controlled and used the company to divert Lagos State funds.
A former Dapo Apara company director charged the company, Tinubu and Akin Doherty, a former Lagos commissioner, of money laundering , Fraud, tax evasion and various corruption practices in a 40-page letter that he submitted to a Supreme Court in Lagos in 2020.
The consignor of the worried Nigerians Deji Adeyanju filed on Friday, October 25, 2019, a Petitioned EFCC to investigate Tinubu for the source of money transported in gold bars to his home in Ikoyi on the eve of the 2019 presidential election.
“To the best of our knowledge, Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a Private individual who should not normally be seen with a Bullion Vans convoy, “Adeyanju said after submitting the petition.
” The Commission recalls that this was reported on all the news that Bullion Vans allegedly did not reported amount of cash entering the home of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state, on the eve of Nigeria’s presidential election. Tinubu himself admitted so when responding to the questioning of journalists. “The petition says.
Bawa has not disclosed what the commission is investigating against the former governor.
However, the EFCC chairman stated that the investigation does not end in a day, noting that the commission conducts thousands of investigations every day.
“Do you understand? You know you’re from the media, “Bawa said.
