Tinubu In Fresh Trouble With EFCC

By Damilola Adeyemo

LAGOS – According to report, the National APC Leader, Bola Tinubu’s assets has been sought for by the Economic Financial Crime Commission(EFCC).

People Gazzette gathered that EFCC has requested Bola Tinubu’s asset declaration documents from the Code of Conduct Bureau, Peoples Gazette can report, in a politically-charged inquiry that could see the former Lagos governor and ruling party chieftain arrested and prosecuted before 2023.

A senior EFCC official familiar with Mr. Tinubu’s investigation said the agency was aided in part by Nigeria’s adoption of a financial system driven by modern surveillance infrastructure. Mr. Tinubu was already arraigned in 2011 for asset declaration fraud, but the matter was dismissed due to the failure of prosecutors to find enough evidence to substantiate their claim that he operated foreign bank accounts while governor between 1999-2007. 

But the EFCC has now found additional information and believed it would successfully nail Mr. Tinubu using the same set of asset documents but with advanced layers of verification. Nigeria has adopted the bank verification number and strengthened its financial intelligence departments since 2011.
