The Office Of The AGF Is Not Investigating Tinubu – Malami

The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has said his office is not investigating All Progressive Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu.

Malami said this while answering questions on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Tuesday.

However, Malami noted that he could not ascertain if the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission or the Code of Conduct Bureau were investigating Tinubu since the two agencies had statutory power to commence probes and prosecution of people.

The AGF said, “The Office of the AGF, as you rightly know, has not taken any decision, has not filed or instituted any action before any court in the land relating to Bola Ahmed Tinubu. But then, within the context of the law as you rightly know, the EFCC and the Code of Conduct are all statutory bodies vested with statutory powers to act within the context of the law establishing them. So, I am not in a position to give you a precise answer.

“The Office of the AGF and its arm, which is the Director of Public Prosecutions, has not initiated any proceedings and no investigation has been instituted at its instance by any agency of government be it EFCC or the Code of Conduct Bureau.”

The EFCC in November 2020, wrote a letter to the CCB requesting copies of Tinubu’s asset declaration form.
