Ibrahim Magu, interim president of the Commission on Economic and Financial Crimes, declined Friday to comment on the petition against Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the Commission on Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that Magu refused to answer a question about the petition against Tinubu while addressing a press conference on Internet fraud at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.
When asked what EFCC was doing about the petition against Tinubu, Magu said: “Do you expect me to respond to the request?”
Recall that the convener of concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju had recently submitted a petition to the EFCC to investigate Tinubu about the source of money allegedly transported in bullion vans to his residence during the 2019 presidential elections.
In the petition, the group had said: “As far as we know, Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a private citizen who ordinarily should not be seen with a convoy of bullion vans.
“Recall that it was reported in all the news that Bullion trucks that allegedly contained an undisclosed amount of cash were seen entering the house of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of the state of Lagos on the eve of the presidential elections in Nigeria. Tinubu admitted this fact while answering the journalists’ questions.
What are bullion vans doing at Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s house? Who owns the content, believing that it is useful in bullion vans that were seen entering the home of Ahmed Tinubu Ball on the eve of the Nigerian presidential elections?
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that Has the commission, based on its central mandates, investigated the source of the Bullion vans? Adeyanju had asked the commission to act and begin an investigation into the appearance of these bullion vans.
“As a nation, we cannot have two separate rules to fight corruption, one for those who oppose the ruling party and one for government supporters,” he said.
