Deji Adeyanju petitions EFCC over Tinubu’s election day bullion vans

Human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, says he has
taken up the challenge by the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission and had agreed to
write a petition against National Leader of the All
Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.
He said the petition will be submitted on Friday.
Adeyanju, who is the convener, Concerned
Nigerians, said this in a Facebook post.

Adeyanju’s decision is coming barely a week
after the EFCC had dared social media activist,
Segun Awosanya, aka Segalink, to write a petition
against Tinubu if he felt it was wrong of the APC
leader to have had two bullion vans at his
Bourdillon, Ikoyi, Lagos home on the eve of the
presidential and National Assembly elections.

Adeyanju, who spent 78 days in custody between
last December and March, said he was not
confident that the EFCC would take action on the
matter, but decided to take the action, because it
was the right thing to do.

He wrote,

“We, Concerned Nigerians, are going to
submit a petition to the EFCC on Friday about
these bullion vans at Tinubu’s house on [the] eve
of presidential elections, then wait to hear what
excuse they will give again.
“We know they won’t take any action but we will
submit the petition.”

The EFCC had been under fire on social media
for failing to take action against Tinubu who
admitted on live television that he, indeed, had
money in the bullion vans which he would give to
his supporters.
