The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has begun probing All Progressives Congress leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The anti-graft agency wrote to the Code of Conduct Bureau requesting copies of Tinubu’s asset declaration form.
According to the letter published by The Peoples Gazette, the EFCC had been probing Tinubu since the removal of the agency’s former Chairman, Ibrahim Magu last year.
The letter marked CR/3000/EFCC/LS/Vol4/322, dated November 6, 2020, was signed by the then Lagos zonal head, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who is now the Chairman of the EFCC.
The letter read in part, “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.”
