FCT, Abuja - The Centre for Reform and Advocacy (CRA) has petitioned the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, to prosecute the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The CRA said its stance was prompted by the release of certified true copy of the indictment and forfeiture of $460,000 for drugs trafficking and money laundering by a United States Court linked to the APC presidential candidate.
