EFCC to CCB: Produce Tinubu’s asset declaration form

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has requested for copies of the former Governor of Lagos state asset declaration form from the Code of Conduct Bureau.

This development comes after the anti-graft agency launched probe of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress Chieftain, Bola Tinubu.

According to the Peoples Gazette report, the investigation into Tinubu began last year after the removal of erstwhile Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

The letter marked CR/3000/EFCC/LS/Vol4/322, dated November 6, 2020 and addressed to the Code of Conduct Bureau, was signed by the then Lagos zonal head, Abdulrasheed Bawa who is now the Chairman of the EFCC.

It read;

“In view of the above, you are kindly requested to furnish the commission with the outstanding requested information of Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu.

“This request is made pursuant to Section 38(1) and (2) of the EFCC Act 2004.”

Confirming the authenticity of the letter, a senior EFCC official told the PUNCH that it was part of a wider probe.

The source added that  the probe was sequel to some petitions written against Tinubu since 2018 which Magu had failed to act on.

He said;

“The letter is authentic. The EFCC is in receipt of several petitions against Tinubu including one involving alleged fraud in Alpha Beta Consulting.”
