Jumping to conclusion on a case like this is not an inherent trait of an enlightened mind. There was no case against him, and if there was any at the time the prosecutor can not prove it. hence the two parties opted for Settlement. And the fact that he travelled to US severally during June 12 crisis does not mean he was trafficking drugs, if you were in Lagos during June 12 crisis, you would ve known that every pro-democracy group member then was target of assassin bullet.

America needs to investigate it's own officials for criminality, before they look at ours.

are you sure.
|Re: aaa by biina: 6:13pm On Apr 18, 2009|
The references for the case are public records in the US and can easily be verified.
The case proved that Tinubu got money from a drug barron, and doesn't specify his level of involvement in the actual trafficking.
|Re: aaa by AjanleKoko: 9:53pm On Apr 18, 2009|
I wonder why everybody is so quick to dismiss the reports.
Can Bola Tinubu not be a drug dealer? Because he's a politician?
I know the Americans can't just cook up stories against him. They have nothing to gain/lose if he goes down.

I always knew Tinubu was dodgy!

Sahara Reporters are not a CREDIBLE SOURCE of any form of real news, pls stop using them as a source. They are only interested in propaganda and making up stories or assuming information on Nigeria.
|Re: aaa by mrsbeauty: 1:24pm On Oct 20, 2009|
it is so untrue. he traveeled to the US at the time mainly because his family were based there. get ur facts right. he is one of the most honourable Nigerians. Kudos to him and his lineage for all they have done for Nigeria, right from Efunroye to Saka Tinubu, to Kafaru Tinubu and now Bola. they are doers. Nigerians just criticise. If you want to make a difference, stop moaning and put yourself on the line
|Re: aaa by Kobojunkie: 1:28pm On Oct 20, 2009|
Please tell me this is a silly joke. Have you been to the US courts to verify, to make the kind of statement you just made above? Just go to the court house in IL to get your facts right first. I can't believe that someone, with all the information available, can stil make the statement above.
|Re: aaa by na_so(m): 2:11pm On Oct 20, 2009|
I am so pissed with all these "its not true", "sahara reporters is not a credible source" bla bla bla , Some are even talking nonsense about enemies being at work. who does not have enemies anyway? and who told you your enemies will not always be at work . But when you make the work of your enemies easy by being involved in shady deals , then whose fault is it?
Is it because we are talking about TINUBU here? We are damn biased in this country. How differently would the reactions have been if the character was an IBORI or an AKALA?
Abeg make we hear word jare. I am 85% convinced that Tinubu has a case to answer in this. Let him use the remaining 15% to prove himself innocent.

i dey wait for mr. due process, naijaking, make him come tell us say na unfair ting to assume say tinubu be tief since court never convict am for any ting. na de ting wey him tell us about bank ceos wey efcc arrest be dat.
truth be told, none of de hands of previous governors and even current ones, dey clean. all of dem be tief! e no matter which state dem come from.
i no tink say tinubu go enter usa, any time soon. him no fit enter with diplomatic passport again. make him come clear his name! court filings don implicate am.

Sorry,what do you mean by this statement?
|Re: aaa by olafolarin(m): 6:40pm On Oct 22, 2009|
I sincerely hope we can all read and summarise what we read.From the article above,As part of the court settlement,he forfeited the 460k dollars in First Heritage bank account he has with the said"Akande".OTHER DEPOSITS HE HAS IN THE SAME BANK,CITIBANK AND OTHER BANKS WAS RETURNED TO HIM.
It is a legal victory for Tinubu to get his siezed dollars in different accounts and banks returned to him which by far exceeds the meagre $460k.However,the amount forfeited was to avoid continous court visits.
During the period under investigation,these guys were making serious push and campaign for the the june 12 election and definitely money needs to exchange hands to oil the machinery.The amount could have been loundered or transfered from Nigeria.
I live in germany and have been visiting U.S.for almost 5 years now,,it takes outright defeat for a Judge to order the immediate release a siezed fund.It means no discrepancies were found and the agents or Feds investigations couldnt proof any link between the fund and narcotics.There is however an established relationship between Tinubu and Akande.But he wasnt involved in Akande's drug distribution network.
Tinubu should not be found guilty by association.
The publication is just one of many attempt to tarnish Tinubu's name.He is the most branded name in South-West politics and his vision and masterplan is being executed today by the present governor.
U.S and Britain are fund of raising dust about our leaders when theirs arent better off.They committed and are still committing the greatest crime against humanity and nobody can say anything about it.

|Re: aaa by seanet02: 7:40pm On Nov 30, 2010|
Wooden nutmeg of lies. Where is the source? Kobo, so this is enough evidence to you? No source. The writer even shot himself in the leg. He said us and Tinubu enter into an agreement on an issue that involves drug trafficking, i have never heard the united states of america done such a thing, neither is there any law in the us that says drug traffickers can be left of the hook if they enter into plea bargaining. This story is nothing but a cooked up story that only political slaves like kobo can believe. Its all lies
|Re: aaa by DapoBear(m): 8:07pm On Nov 30, 2010|
Post above by @olafolarin nails most of it. Tinubu appears to have laundered narcotics money, but this doesn't mean he was a drug dealer/drug lord himself.
There is a distinction between the two. Drug dealers generally don't open bank accounts themselves or try to launder their drug money clean themselves. Instead they find someone else to do it.
If the DA had been able to form a case against Tinubu for felony DRUG TRAFFICKING, then he wouldn't have been able to come to any deals. He'd probably be rotting in prison to this day. It is almost impossible in this country to come to any sort of arrangement that will keep you out of prison if you are involved in felony drug trafficking.
Worst thing you can say about Tinubu is that he was somehow involved in laundering money, and in fact drug money. However, even the DA wasn't able to build a case against him strong enough to lock him up (otherwise they would have taken it to court and not given him the choice of just forfeiting the money!)
The fact that he was forced to give up that $460K in a deal, was not jailed, and still travels back and forth to the US should be enough to tell you that he was not drug lord, as many here accuse him of being. Drug lords do not get visas from Nigeria to be travelling to America, much less giving lectures there.
Now, with all of the above said, does this mean that Tinubu is CLEAN? Almost certainly not. He is very likely a crooked man. At the very least, we can suspect he laundered drug money for his underworld friends, and may have done worse. But may is not the same as did. Innocent until proven guilty is the law of the land, at least here in the US.
Let no one call Tinubu a drug dealer again, unless they can provide hard evidence of it. And if you FIND that hard evidence, don't just bring it here. Call up the DA in the US and have them lock him up! If you have a picture or photo of Tinubu dealing drugs, not only post it here, send it to the district attorney so they can lock him up next time he visits the US! Somehow I doubt that anyone can produce this hard evidence.
Anyway, no more he-say she-say slander stuff that the Kobojunkie's of the world do.
