Human rights activist, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, has again called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to investigate the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu over bullion vans sighted in his Lagos residence during the last presidential election.
Speaking with Daily Independent, Mr Ozekhome urged the EFCC to act in accordance with the law and investigate the petition written by many activists in that respect.
According to him, the Act establishing the EFCC mandates it to investigate any person no matter how highly placed he may be.
He said: “When a petition is written against their chieftain, it is written in bad faith; but when it is written against small-time ‘yahoo boys’, then it is written in good faith.
“What is the job of EFCC under Section 6 and 7 of the EFCC Act? It is to investigate any person no matter how highly placed in accordance with its motto ‘No one is above the law’.
“No one is saying Tinubu has done anything wrong yet, but don’t Nigerians have a right to demand that he be investigated?
“Why should the investigation be written off whether it was done in bad faith or good faith? Why can’t the bad faith be shown in the aftermath of the investigation? There should be no sacred cows,” Mr Ozekhome added.
