This could see Tinubu arrested and prosecuted ahead of the 2023 elections.

The EFCC in November 2020, asked the asset fraud investigation office to supply details of Tinubu’s asset documents as part of an ongoing probe of the politician

The request, dated November 6, was a follow-up to previous demands made with respect to Tinubu’s asset filings.

In the letter, the EFCC referred to its previous letter of September 4, 2020, and CCB’s response of October 9, 2020, asking the bureau to supply “outstanding requested information of Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu.”

It was not immediately clear whether or not the CCB has obliged the EFCC’s request for additional information ever since, or the nature and scope of information provided if applicable.

Respective spokespersons for the EFCC and CCB did not return requests seeking comments about Mr. Tinubu’s investigation as led by Abdulrasheed Bawa when he was the head of Lagos zonal office.
