BULLION VANS : Why EFCC Must Arrest Tinubu – Reno Omokri


Reno Omokri posted this on Instagram asking thought provoking questions. Remember that an eve to Imo State Gubernatorial election the Accountant General of Imo State, Uzoho Casmir , was arrested over suspected N1.050 billion money laundering allegation ? But Tinubu was caught on camera and never denied his yet he is a hero .

Below is Reno Omokri’s post :

” ‪What Bola Tinubu did was wrong. Having bullion vans bring cash to your house 48 hours to an election is prima facie evidence of influence voters using money. If President Buhari really had integrity, the EFCC would have picked up Tinubu by now.

Tinubu even boasted on live television that the bullion vans carried money and that it is nobody’s business. That is not true. It is the business of the EFCC by virtue of the ‬Money Laundering Act of 2011. If the EFCC is not aware of that act, let me remind them. ‪The Money Laundering Act of 2011 makes it illegal for any individual to make cash payments exceeding Five Million Naira. And provides that every cash transaction over ₦5,000,000 must be done via a financial institution. ‪Tinubu‬ obviously flouted this law.

By virtue of the Money Laundering Act of 2011, any person found guilty of making or accepting any cash payment above ₦5,000,000 is liable to imprisonment for a term of not less than 3 years or a fine of ₦10,000,000 (Ten Million Naira) or both.

If I, Reno Omokri, an opposition critic of the Buhari administration was found to have received bullion vans full of cash 48 hours to an election, I would have been arrested before evening on the same day. Is the Nigerian law a respecter of persons? ‪Is Tinubu above the law? Just imagine if someone linked to the PDP or Atiku had bullion vans going into their house 48 hours to elections. Would the EFCC have been this quiet? Would Buhari have sat idly by as he is doing for Tinubu? ‬ ‪President Buhari has been celebrating with Tinubu ever since he ‘won’ the election. Is he not aware of #TinubusBullionVans? Does it mean that it is only members of the opposition PDP that are eligible for EFCC’s prosecution? ‬ “
