Looter: Bola Tinubu has 16 Foreign Accounts while serving as governor


LOOTERS, KILLERS, MURDERERS...ONE NIGERIA MY FOOT!!!


The Federal Government last month filed criminal charge against former Lagos State governor, Senator Bola Tinubu, for allegedly operating 16 foreign accounts as governor between 1999 and 2007, contrary to the provisions of the nation’s law book. He was charged to the Code of Conduct Tribunal which will conduct th trial. Reports say the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is also investigating hurried sale of five houses belonging to Tinubu in the United States of America. The EFCC had handed

over to the Bureau, the aspect of the on-going probe of Tinubu that bordered on the alleged illegal operation of the foreign accounts, since it falls under the bureau’s purview.

The EFCC took over the case file when his immunity as governor stalled it, but it was handed back to the bureau some weeks ago and the EFCC took the necessary steps to commence his prosecution.

It was gathered that the case file was returned to the bureau shortly after the courtesy visit of her boss, Sam Saba, to the EFCC’s chairperson, Mrs. Farida Waziri.
In the amended charge, the former governor was accused of engaging in the operation of several foreign bank accounts since he assumed office in 1999 till date, “contrary to section 7 of the Code of Condcut Bureau and Tribunal Act, Cap 56 LFN, 1990 and punishable under section 23 (2) thereof as incorporated under paragraph 18, part I, Fifth Schedule to the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

The foreign bank accounts listed against him in the earlier charge which was just slightly amended by the bureau included;

In a seven-paragraph affidavit supporting the initial charge, deposed to by Ikechi Iwuagwu, a Deputy Director in the Conduct Bureau, the prosecution claimed;

That on 4th of March, 2003, before the expiration of the first term in office of Governor Bola Tinubu, an asset declaration form CCB-1 was sent to the accused person as a public officer.

That the accused person declared his assets and liabilities in the said form and returned the form to our office on 6th January, 2004. A copy of the said form is hereby attached and marked as Exhibit “A”

That all the assets declared by the accused person are as indicated in the assets declaration from CCB-1.

That the accused person did not declare any other things/assets or the operation of several foreign bank accounts in the said assets declaration form CCB-1submitted by the accused person marked as Exhibit A.

That I was informed by Mr. O.T Olatigbe, counsel handling this matter and I verily believe him that the accused person is still operating several foreign bank accounts which he did not declare before the Code of Conduct...
