JUST IN: PEPC Dismisses LP’s Drug Trafficking Suit Against Tinubu

President Tinubu

Haruna Tsamani, the presiding judge of the Presidential Election Petition Court, has rejected the Labour Party’s (LP) allegations of drug trafficking against Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The Labour Party had asserted that Tinubu had been charged with narcotics trafficking and forfeited $460,000 to the US via a case decided by a US District Court.

The judge cited a letter sent by the US Embassy in 2003 and concurred with Tinubu’s counsel’s argument.

The allegation is one of the grounds upon which the petition of the LP was instituted against the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect after Nigeria’s February 25 presidential election.

The embassy had communicated with Tafa Balogun, the Inspector-General of Police at the time, that a records check conducted to establish Tinubu’s involvement in drug crimes came back negative.

The court proceeded to read the contents of the letter from the US embassy in Nigeria.
