Joe Igbokwe, an ally of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has dug up what Nuru Ribadu, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), said about the ex-governor while he headed the antigraft agency.
In Igbokwe's post, Ribadu was quoted to have said that he started an investigation into allegations of financial corruption in the state while Tinubu was the governor.
Nothing was found on Tinubu
At the time, the then EFCC boss said he worked with foreign security agencies like the Metropolitan Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) when the EFCC could not find anything wrong or suspicious about Tinubu's administration.

Ribadu said he had to contact the then National Assembly and informed its leadership to wait for findings from foreign security outfits, which, according to him, also found nothing on Tinubu.
He went on to disclose that this is why Lagos was the only state in Nigeria that was not charged to court then.
"One state we investigated most during my tenure as EFCC Chairman is Lagos. We sent information to all our allies in the Metropolitan Police, the FBI etc.
"I remember I told the National Assembly when EFCC could not get any wrong about Tinubu in Lagos, I said we must wait for the international community because they were also doing their investigation.
"We were all waiting to expose Lagos corruption but even the international community didn't indict him, they found nothing. That is why LAGOS under Tinubu was the only state EFCC didn't charge to court..."

He revealed that he became a millionaire in dollars at least 10 years before he became the governor of Lagos state.
