What EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu said about Tinubu’s bullion vans
The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has refused to comment on the petition filed against Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over some bullion vans seen entering his house.
The bullion vans were pictured entering Tinubu’s house during the 2019 general elections in Nigeria.
During a press briefing, Magu was asked by PUNCH to comment on the petition.
Magu, who appeared agitated, said, “You want me to talk about a petition here? Next question please.”
The petition was submitted by Deji Adeyanju to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to investigate the source of money in the bullion vans that were seen entering Tinubu’s house.
A copy of the petition which Deji Adeyanju shared on Twitter showed that the EFCC has received it as it showed their stamp.
“To the best of our knowledge, Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a private citizen who ordinarily should not be seen with a convoy of Bullion Vans,” Adeyanju said after submitting the petition.
The petition reads:
“The commission would recall that it was reported all over the news that Bullion Vans allegedly Contammg an undisclosed amount of cash were Seen entering the home of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Lagos State on the eve of Nigeria presidential elections. Tinubu himself admitted to this fact While responding to questioning by journalists.”
Adeyanju also gave some questions to the anti-graft agency to answer:
“What are Bullion Vans doing in the house of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu? “Who owns the content, believing to be cash in the Bullion Vans that were seen entering the house of Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the eve of Nigerian presidential elections? “Has the commission, based on its core mandates, investigated the source of the Bullion Vans? “Is Bola Ahmed Tinubu house, now a bank where Bullion Vans now take money to?”
