I wonder the kind soap the man dey use.

He didn't say "Tinubu this, Tinubu that". He said how did Tinubu suddenly become a billionaire from 1999 to date?

Hope his statement is clear to you now?

As at 98 just one of Tinubu's bank Citibank account used for Compass finance had balance of 12 million dollars even after forfeiture of 400k dollars

So technically he is a billionaire far before politics

FBI conducted a full scale opreation and investigation and Tinubu wasn't culpable of heroin trafficking or sales

What Compass finance is , and Afrinvest owned by Obaseki are similar... They collect funds from anybody and invest it in stocks, Eurobonds and other portfolio investment , they give you a stipulated return on investment and keep profit

Agbele investing drug money is non of Tinubu's business since FBI never saw Tinubu with drugs or trading drugs, as a matter of fact he had worked for almost 3 top US conglomerate

Money laundering act barely stated "Transaction" ,for easier assimilation for someone like you "Payment" beyond 5 million must be reported by banks to Anti Graft Agency , no law prohibits anybody from moving any amount of self owned physical cash


You can only induce voters at polling units in the day of Election as a candidate or party agent, Budillion drive Ikoyi Lagos is a private residence not a polling booth


Give use any evidence that the bullion vans contain 5 million and more

"In 1989, Moss said in an affidavit, Tinubu established an individual money market account, into which he deposited $1,000 in traveler’s checks, and a negotiable order of withdrawal account (NOW) at First Heritage Bank in Country Club Hills, Illinois.The address Tinubu gave the bank was the same as the listed headquarters of Globe-Link International, the front company owned by Akande and his relatives."

https://www.thedailybeast.com/nigerian-pres-svengali-tied-to-heroin?ref=scroll

Tinubu was very close with the cocaine kingpin Akande. Why are you denying the fact he was very close with the two cocaine kingpins and knew them intimately and not some random investors?

So it's no more factual evidence of indictment or prosecution to a crime, it is now about knowing a criminal?

He knew two cocaine druglords, who were also directors in his company. And had to forfeit the $460k they paid into his accounts for being proceeds of narcotics and money laundering.

They were the Nigerian equivalent of Pablo Escobar in Chicago.

In the corruption capital of the world, yes. And it is against the money laundering act, which prohibits moving more than N5 million naira physical cash for civilians.

And also an electoral crime inducing voters.

Why did he bring two bullion vans a day before the election to his residence. Nigerians around the world have been calling for him to be investigated by EFCC to determine which bank the bullions vans were rented from and the amount in them.

He did not have a balance of $12 million dollars.

$1.4 millions dollars was initially seized and out of that amount $460k was forfeited for narcotics and money laundering.

"At the time, Tinubu’s take home as a Mobil Oil Nigeria executive was a mere $2,400 a month and he claimed not to have any other revenue streams. Yet he still managed to deposit $661,000 into his individual money market account in 1990 and then another $1,216,500 a year later. He also opened more accounts with Citibank in its worldwide personal banking unit, transferring over half a million dollars from his First Heritage money market account into one of them in early 1991."

This is my first time to comment on tinubu matter. He can carry bullion vans anytime anyday. whosoever state or allocation get lost can only probe him. Obaseki that doesnt use bullion van, where is his commissioner that was arrested and y? As at last checked, no law against bullion van entering any private residence. I just pity this obaseki of a guy, he should ask saraki, dino. Infact, His case go worse pass them. By 21/22, we all will btw ambode calming style and obaseki froggy eye style wch is better. Besides, ambode wasnt governor cos he didnt win primary not disqualified.
Tinubu bullion van is no one biz.
N.b: I don't like any of our politicians but dis man had paid his dues thats y he's able to use bullion van hence more jealous and envy from outside party.
