AGF Office Hasn’t Filed Investigation Against Tinubu – Malami
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

The Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has said that his office is not investigating the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu.

Malami disclosed this on Tuesday in an interview with Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme.

He could not confirm if the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, or the Code of Conduct bureau were investigating Tinubu since they both had constitutional powers to carry out probes and prosecute people.

“The Office of the AGF, as you rightly know, has not taken any decision, has not filed or institute 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,” Malami said while responding to a question.

“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 the government be it EFCC or the Code of Conduct Bureau.”

Recall that the EFCC had in November last year written a letter to the CCB seeking copies of Tinubu’s asset declaration form.
