The petition follows a report by US-based Nigerian journalist, David Hundeyin in West Africa Weekly that linked the former Lagos Governor to a drug business in Chicago.
The history of Tinubu became easy to track following his journey to Chicago in 1975, after claiming to be in exile.
The former Governor upon his arrival in Chicago first spent 2 years gaining an Associate degree at Richard J. Daley College.
He thereafter proceeded to Chicago State University where he studied Accounting, completing his Bachelor’s degree in 1979.
Tinubu, in an interview with The News, claimed that he got a job with Deloitte & Touche, where he supposedly received an $850,000 bonus as a result of his work on a single onsite engagement at the Saudi state-owned oil firm.
West Africa Weekly, however, disclosed that a document, which was obtained from the US District Court of the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, allegedly revealed damning information about Tinubu.
The document contains a comprehensive federal indictment and associated case files from July 1993 containing clear and incontrovertible evidence that Tinubu was allegedly involved in laundering proceeds of heroin trafficking for a Nigerian drug ring in Chicago.
KanyiDaily recalls that a former presidential aspirant, Reno Omokri had also claimed that he have documents to prove that Bola Tinubu is a drug lord.
