January 22, (THEWILL) – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately effect the arrest and prosecution of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), over alleged drug trafficking and siphoning of state funds.
Speaking at a joint media briefing in Abuja on Sunday afternoon, Spokesperson for the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, Daniel Bwala, specifically asked the NDLEA to call Tinubu for questioning over the deal which led to him forfeiting $460,000 to US authorities.
Bwala, who condemned a group he described as “media militia”, allegedly set up by Tinubu, asked security agencies to arrest and prosecute any person, who belongs to the so-called ‘Jagaban Army’.
Also, Special Assistant on Public Communication to the Atiku-Okowa Campaign Organisation, Phrank Shaibu, also alleged that Tinubu was still involved in the illegal drug-related business as recently as 2015.
He added that Tinubu transferred $4.3m US dollars to a briefcase company based in Colombia.
