The disclosure is expected to clarify outstanding questions about when Mr Tinubu entered the U.S., under which name he entered and all activities he has been involved in ever since.
“FBI has identified a total of approximately 2500 pages potentially responsive to FOIA requests 1553430-00 and 1587544-000,” the U.S. body said in a status report docketed on September 11 at the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in Washington, D.C. “FBI plans a processing schedule of 500 pages per month, with an initial release anticipated by the end of October 2023.
Recall Tinubu’s alleged dealings in the United States made a part of the election petition filed against him by Labour Party and PDP presidential candidates Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar.
His forfeiture of $460,000 over drug related matters in Chicago was eventually thrown out by the court as it was said not to be enough to constitute a criminal offense.
