The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has deepened its probe into All Progressives Congress stalwart, Bola Tinubu.
To this end, the EFCC has written a letter to the Code of Conduct Bureau, requesting copies of Tinubu’s asset declaration form.
A copy of the letter which was published by online news medium, The Peoples Gazette, revealed that the investigation into Tinubu began last year after the removal of erstwhile Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
The letter dated November 6, 2020 was signed by the then Lagos zonal head, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who is now the Chairman of the EFCC.
Attempts to speak with the EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, proved abortive as he did not respond to calls.
However, a senior EFCC official confirmed the authenticity of the letter, adding that it was part of a wider probe.
The official, who wished to remain anonymous, said the probe was sequel to some petitions written against Tinubu since 2018 which Magu had failed to act on.
