Festus Keyamo, the chief spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, has stated that the party’s flag bearer, Bola Tinubu, only shared a “block of flats” with notorious cocaine dealers in Chicago, in response to the release of court documents indicating Mr. Tinubu’s ties to the illicit drug trade and money laundering in the United States.
“What happened was that Asiwaju (Bola Tinubu) went to open an account. The address which he used in opening the account was the address used by these people…(sic). I think some blocks of flats. Maybe, he happened to be in that block of flats too.
“So, they now link it that the other people they were investigating for narcotics are in the same address used by Asiwaju to open that account,” Mr Keyamo said on Wednesday on Channels Television program to exonerate the former Lagos governor from the fresh controversies that had been trailing his involvement in drug peddling.
