DOCUMENTS: Strong evidence shows Tinubu’s $460k forfeiture was for drug trafficking, money laundering in U.S.
Documents obtained by News Band have shown strong evidence that the forfeiture of $460,000 imposed on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, in 1993 was actually for drug trafficking and money laundering.
The first document dated July 26, 1993, shows how the United States Marshals executed the forfeiture and took possession of the funds found in the bank accounts of Tinubu.
Entitled “Warrant Of Seizure And Motion“, it was filed by Michael J. Shepherd, the United States Attorney for the District on behalf of the United States in the city of Chicago against bank accounts belonging to Tinubu.
Below is a receipt of the forfeiture by showing Tinubu broke the laws by dealing on drugs and the U.S Government took the drug money:
The second document also entitled “Warrant Of Seizure And Motion” by Michael Shepherd and also dated July 26, 1993, shows how the United States Marshals executed the forfeiture and took possession of the funds found in the bank accounts of Tinubu and his comrades in trade, namely Compass Finance & Investment Co.
See the attached document below:
Meanwhile, the third document entitled “Instruction For Service Of Process By The U.S. Marshall” listed the procedure for service of the Warrant Of Seizure And Motion on the affected persons:
The two other documents obtained are part of a 58-page document detailing the Tinubu’s drug cartel prosecutions in the United States in 1993.
However, on a daily basis, more damaging information is revealed and established about Tinubu which, according to Jackson Ude, ‘confirmed and certified him as a career criminal with over 50 years experience in the underworld’.
Before the 2023 general elections, Nigerians were told that the $460,000 he forfeited from drug crimes was tax money he paid.
Tinubu’s supporters even claimed that the U.S apologized to Bola Tinubu after he was indicted for drug crimes in the U.S District Court, Northern District of Illinois.
Available documents have shown otherwise, and according to some source, Tinubu escaped prison because at the given time, he escaped from the United States to Nigeria and negotiated his way through the forfeiture.
In the meantime, though, Nigerians are eagerly expecting the N2,500-page document soon to be released by the Federal Investigation Bureau (FBI) and five other United States agencies at the end of the month of October.
The expected release of the documents followed a court order filed by ace investigative journalist, Mr. David Hundeyin, and his American counterpart, Aaron Green, which ordered FBI and other agencies to make the documents available to the applicants.
The documents promised to reveal the raw and undiluted identity, as well as activities, of Tinubu in the North American country.
