The EFCC’s investigation into Bola Tinubu has taken a new turn, with the anti-graft body seeking copies of the former Lagos state governor’s asset declaration form from the Code of Conduct Bureau.
Daliy Times recalls that the Peoples Gazette was the first to announce that an inquiry into BAT had started last year, following the dismissal of former Chairman Ibrahim Magu.
The letter, addressed to the Code of Conduct Bureau and marked CR/3000/EFCC/LS/Vol4/322, was signed by Abdulrasheed Bawa, the then Lagos zonal head, who is now the Chairman of the EFCC.
It stated: “In light of the above, you are kindly requested to provide the commission with Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu’s outstanding requested information.

He said, “This letter is genuine. Several petitions have been lodged against him with the EFCC, including one alleging misconduct in Alpha Beta Consulting.
