Petition Against Tinubu: Magu Throws Question Into The Wind


ABUJA, NIGERIA - The  question concerning a petition instituted against the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and former Lagos State governor,  Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been refused by the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.

It would be recalled that Ibrahim Magu had during a press conference in Abuja,  Nigeria, decried the level of corruption in the country, with particular reference to youths who he insisted   perpetrates internet fraud.

Ibrahim Magu had further revealed that many non-governmental organisations operating in the North-East were being used for money laundering.

But when The PUNCH correspondent requested that Ibrahim Magu should give an update on the petition submitted against Bola Ahmed Tinubu,  Ibrahim Magu said: “You want me to talk about a petition here? Next question please.”

Prior to this time,  the Convener, Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, had last week submitted a petition against Bola Ahmed Tinubu over having two cash-laden bullion vans in his compound on the eve of the presidential elections in February.

Meanwhile in an earlier interview,  Bola Ahmed Tinubu had insisted that the money belonged to him and he was free to distribute it to his supporters since he was not a government official.
