Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has revealed that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is under investigation.
The EFCC chairman disclosed this in an interview published by ThisDay on Sunday.
Speaking on why the EFCC is yet to arrest the former Lagos governor, Bawa said the EFCC is currently investigating Tinubu and such investigation does not end in a day.
Bawa said: “You asked me a question earlier about arresting people before investigation and now you are saying why didn’t we arrest Tinubu? Why didn’t you just say ‘arrest him?’
“Investigation is ongoing. When you are investigating matters like this, they don’t end in a day. Thousands of investigations are going on, on a daily basis.
“You understand? You know you are from the media. After you will say we are doing media trial.”
Meanwhile, a former Managing Director of Alpha Beta LLP, Dapo Apara, has dragged Bola Tinubu before a court over the control of the finances of the company.
Apara had filed a suit before a Lagos State High Court asking it to stop Tinubu from controlling the finances of the tax consulting firm.
In the suit filed by his counsel Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN) on Wednesday, Apara alleged that Tinubu controls the firm that monitors and generates revenue on behalf of the Lagos State Government.
