The petition filed by Deji Adeyanju against Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is reportedly lying fallow in the anti-graft agency.
A reliable source at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), disclosed to Sahara Reporters that the petition was being unattended because of its lack of merit at the moment.
On October 25th, 2019, Deji Adeyanju, Human Rights Activist and Convener of Concerned Nigerians filed a petition against the APC Chieftain last week, questioning the reason Tinubu had two bullion Van’s allegedly containing money in the evenof 2019 Presidential elections.
Adeyanju reminded the Commission the reason behind its establishment; to investigate properties of any person whose lifestyle and extent of properties acquired, are not justified by his source of income, according to Section 7(1) (b) of the EFCC Establishment Act, 2004.
Adeyanju took up the challenge of filing the petition after the anti-graft agency revealed that the Commission could not investigate citizens without a formal complaint or request.
However, the reliable source said the EFCC has not made any efforts to commence investigation since the petition was submitted.
“There is a petition but it is just somewhere lying fallow. Maybe tomorrow it will be picked up but right now, there is nothing on it.” according to the source
