The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday
vowed to investigate the National head of the All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu over the bullion vans that conveyed cash into his residence on February
Despite the fact that the EFCC has declined remarks about whether it had propelled an investigation to get the root on how former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, came about the bullion vans that drove into his home in February.
Nigerians have mounted pressure on the anti-graft office to open money laundering probe against Mr Tinubu, after the ruling party chieftain was seen on February 22 receiving at least two armoured vehicles believed to be bearing cash.
The development raised controversies because it came a day to the presidential election on February 23.
Mr Tinubu is a senior leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and a strong ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was seeking reelection at the time.
Critics said there was no doubt the vehicles were conveying cash to bribe voters with, especially since such trucks are used in Nigeria almost exclusively to convey cash by banks, government institutions and cash-in-transit firms.
