Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, says national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is under investigation.
EFCC boss stated this in an exclusive interview published by Thisday on Sunday, while answering a question on why he is yet to arrest the former Lagos state governor.
Bawa noted that investigation does not end in a day.
He said: “You asked me a question earlier about arresting people before investigation and now you are saying why didn’t we arrest Tinubu? Why didn’t you just say ‘arrest him?’
“Investigation is ongoing. When you are investigating matters like this, they don’t end in a day. Thousands of investigations are going on, on a daily basis.
“You understand? You know you are from the media. After you will say we are doing media trial.”
Bawa was said to have requested for Tinubu’s assets declaration form when he was the head of Lagos Zonal Office.
