Drug smuggling: 10 accounts linked to Tinubu, $460,000 in tax deducted – Keyamo

Amid allegations of drug trafficking, a spokesperson for the All Progressives Conference, APC, presidential campaign team, Festus Keyamo, revealed that US and US authorities and the government had linked 10 bank accounts to All Progressives, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu in the early 1990s.

Keyamo said the US government deducted $460,000 from an account in tax on investments.

He revealed this while appearing on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Wednesday.

Recently, a court document appeared on the Internet accusing Tinubu of drug dealing and money laundering.

The document, issued by the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, said Tinubu has been investigated for money laundering and drug trafficking for 30 years.

Speaking about the issue, Keyamo said the APC presidential candidate was responsible for these accounts, but some of them were traced back to his mother and “relatives.”

“The US government said he didn’t pay taxes on those benefits,” he said. That’s it and guess what? The banks are supposed to deduct the tax from the source.

“Out of the ten accounts, there was only one — the account in Heritage Bank — in which they received $460,000 in tax on the interest they made on the investment they made in those accounts.

In fact, not all of the money in Heritage Bank was taken; They only took $460,000 in tax.”
