Peter Obi, LP Failed To Prove Tinubu Was Convicted Of Money Laundering In US – Tribunal | #NwokeukwuMascot
The five-man panel led by Justice Haruna Tsammani ruled on Wednesday that no record of criminal arrest or conviction was established against Tinubu by the petitioners – Obi and the LP.
The petitioners also argued that Tinubu was not legally qualified to contest the election, alleging that he was previously convicted and fined the sum of $460,000.00 by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, in Case No: 93C 4483, for an offence involving dishonesty and drug trafficking.
With regard to that, the court said there were no records of Tinubu’s arrest in the US.
Regarding the allegations, the court said Tinubu still enjoyed unimpeded access to the US so it was discountenanced.
The court held that the petitioners failed to show that Tinubu was charged, fined, found guilty or sentenced to jail for the alleged offence relating to drug trafficking.
