The presidential candidate for the All Progressive Congress (APC), His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been said to harbor the sum of 400 billion naira in the underground part of his house. According to reports, this was discovered through a raid by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, purportedly in accordance with the orders given by President Muhammadu Buhari. It was also claimed that investigations are still ongoing to uncover the bank official(s) who participated in one way or another in the economic scandal. The candidate’s party and the economic and financial crime commission have already come out to deny any involvement in or occurrence of the said activities or events. The EFCC advised the public to dismiss the report in a statement on Sunday that was signed by its Head of Media and Publicity and labeled it as false.
The statement read, “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report circulating in the social media, claiming that EFCC operatives raided the home of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, standard-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the upcoming presidential elections, and recovered a humongous sum of N400 billion.”

“The Commission wishes to state that the EFCC did not conduct such an operation.” The general population is urged to ignore the information since it is “false news.”
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council has also refuted the claim that the EFCC stormed the “underground mansion” of Bola Tinubu, its presidential candidate. The APC campaign council’s statement, which was signed by Bayo Onanuga, director of media and publicity, said that the narrative conspicuously lacked the crucial “when, where, and how” components of any news story that goes viral.
The narrative also claimed that “The amount of money found in Tinubu’s “subterranean residence” equates to “the total money printed for the entire Nigeria,” according to the CBN. However, the council requested that “How do you account for the billions distributed by the central bank to all the banks and POS distributors, if Tinubu alone is in possession of all the money created by Godwin Emefiele’s CBN?
