Bullion Vans: Nigerians Can Demand For Tinubu’s Investigation – Ozekhome


Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) ,a human rights lawyer has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the petition written by activists on the bullion vans sighted at the residence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on the eve of the 2019 presidential election.
Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Ozekhome said the position of Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) that the petition was written in bad faith.
He said the Act establishing EFCC mandates it to investigate any person no matter how highly placed in accordance with its motto which says no one is above the law.

When a petition is written against their chieftain, it is written in bad faith; but when it is written against small-time ‘yahoo boys’, then it is written in good faith”.

“What is the job of EFCC under Section 6 and 7 of the EFCC Act? It is to investigate any person no matter how highly placed in accordance with its motto ‘No one is above the law’.

No one is saying Tinubu has done anything wrong yet, but don’t Nigerians have a right to demand that he be investigated? Why should the investigation be written off whether it was done in bad faith or good faith? Why can’t the bad faith be shown in the aftermath of the investigation? There should be no sacred cows” he asked.
