National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu is currently under special investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), TopNaija reports.


This was recently revealed by the Chairman of the anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa.

When queried by ThisDay on why Tinubu hasn’t been arrested for alleged corruption, the Chairman of the anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa said: “You asked me a question earlier about arresting people before investigation and now you are saying why didn’t we arrest Tinubu?

“Investigation is ongoing. When you are investigating matters like this, they don’t end in a day. Thousands of investigations are going on, on a daily basis.”

Bawa added that the EFCC won’t engage in media trial. Tinubu has been accused of controlling the finances of Alpha Beta Consulting and for using the company to divert Lagos State funds.

In 2011, the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) tried and acquitted Tinubu for allegedly operating 10 foreign bank accounts during his spell as governor from 1999 to 2007.

Tinubu, 69, is believed to be interested in vying for the office of President of Nigeria in 2023.

Tinubu caused quite a stir during the 2019 general elections when a bullion van reportedly laden with cash, made an entry into one of his luxury property on Bourdillon, in Ikoyi.

In April 2007, after the elections but before Babatunde Fashola had taken office, the Federal Government brought Tinubu before the Code of Conduct Bureau for trial over the alleged illegal operation of 16 separate foreign accounts.

In January 2009, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission cleared Tinubu and governors James Ibori of Delta State and Obong Victor Attah of Akwa Ibom State of charges of conspiracy, money laundering, abuse of office and official corruption in relation to a sale of V-mobile network shares in 2004
