A Lagos Medical Doctor has asked the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to re-open the inquiry into the criminal allegations against former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The allegations were then made by the late Chief Gani Fawehinmi.
The complaints which include falsification of statement/declaration and documents/certificates, was raised by the late legal luminary while Tinubu was in office. However, since the demise of the “Senior Advocate of the Masses”, nothing has been heard of the case.
Dr. Adegbola Dominic of Santa Maria Hospital, Lagos in a letter dated November 1, 2012, urged the Inspector-General of Police,Mohammed Abubakar to constitute a team to re-visit the charges.
