A court document purportedly indicting Tinubu for drug dealing and money laundering recently surfaced online.

According to the document released by the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Tinubu was investigated for money laundering and drug trafficking 30 years ago.

Speaking on the matter, Keyamo stated that the APC presidential candidate was responsible for the accounts, but that some could be traced back to his mother and “relatives.”

“The US government said he had not paid tax on those interests,” he explained. That’s all, and guess what? The banks are supposed to deduct the tax at the source.

“Out of the ten accounts, it was only one – the one in Heritage Bank – that they took $460,000 as tax on interest that he benefited from the investment he made in those accounts.”

“In fact, they did not take all of the money in Heritage Bank; they took only $460,000 as tax.”
