Tinubu Controversy: Is It True Or Just A Rumor?
According to Igbo Times Magazine, after investigating one of Tinubu’s underground residences, EFCC agents discovered around N400 billion in old currencies.
Agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission allegedly stormed the residence of All Progressives
Congress presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu recovered N400 billion.
This notion has been rejected by the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council.
Simultaneously, the Campaign Council urged that the publishers be arrested for libel.
The APC PCC responded after the EFCC denied conducting the raid on the former governor of Lagos State’s house.
The APC’s presidential Campaign Council has denied that the
EFCC stormed the “underground House” of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu Scandal: 400 Billion Found In His Residence
The anti-graft agency, presumably acting on orders from President Muhammadu Buhari,
allegedly uncovered N400 billion in Mr. Tinubu’s house during the operation, sparking controversy.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission denied that Bola Tinubu’s home was searched.
In a statement, the Campaign Council claimed that the story
lacked the critical who, what, when, and how components that allow a news story to go viral.
The statement was issued by Bayo Onanuga, director of media and publicity.
According to one internet source, investigations into which bank manager
provided Mr. Tinubu access to such cash are still ongoing.
According to the story, the money discovered in Tinubu’s underground
residence was equal to all of the currency printed by the CBN for Nigeria as a whole.
Is This News True Or False?
According to a statement issued by the PCC Media and Publicity Director,
Bayo Onanuga, the Campaign Council found that the bogus website was developed to convey hostile and misleading information about their candidate.
The former managing director of the News Agency of Nigeria praised the
EFCC for quickly denying involvement in the bogus claim by publishing a formal statement
addressing the alleged raid by its troops, but he urged national security agencies to pursue the website owners.
Tinubu EFCC confirmed that they did not raid tinubu’s residence
because of a purported N400 million in a personal vault.
Prior to the anti-corruption agency’s denial on Sunday, the story gathered popularity on social media.
He urged the government to find the culprits responsible for
the website that is recklessly propagating bogus news before more harm is done to their polity.
They also wanted to warn Nigerians about the hazards of believing any news from the website or its social media pages.
Is the bank manager in jail?
The statement said that the website, which appears to have
links to the Labour Party on Twitter and Facebook, went on to claim in another post
that Mr. Muhammadu has ordered the arrest of the bank manager who donated the bogus monies to the APC candidate.
The online magazine previously stated that an irate mob had prevented N3 billion in fresh notes from reaching Tinubu’s home.
According to the APC Campaign Council, other bogus stories on the website
claimed that the federal government intended to borrow money from kidnappers in Kaduna
because they have more riches than their country, attributing the false news to Lai Mohammed, the minister of media and culture.
