Activists To EFCC: Investigate Source Of Money Conveyed In Bullion Vans To Home Of APC National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu

Bola Ahmed Tinubu 

ABUJA, NIGERIA - A group of activists, including the convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, on Friday, October 25, 2019, called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to investigate the source of money conveyed in bullion vans to the home of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on the eve of the 2019 presidential election.

The call came while the activists were submitting a petition addressed to the Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.

Other activists who signed the petition includes Ariyo-Dare Atoye of the Coalition in Defence of Nigerian Democracy and Constitution and Adebayo Raphael of the Free Nigeria Movement.

Addressing media men,  Deji Adeyanju said: “Remember, a few days ago, the EFCC challenged Nigerians that the reason they cannot investigate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the election eve bullion vans sighted at his residence was that there was no petition to that effect.

“Some of us have already taken up the challenge which is exactly the reason we are here and I believe that, as citizens of our country, we must always ensure that the right thing is done at all times.

“You can see that, even as we are addressing the press, members of the EFCC are harassing us.

"Section 7 (1) (b) of the EFCC Establishment Act 2004 gives the commission the power to investigate properties of any person that appears to the commission that the person’s lifestyle and extent of the properties are not justified by his source of income."
