Mukhtar Daniyan, an Africa and Middle East Public Policy and Security Expert, popularly known by his Twitter handle @MrAyeDee, and for his lead role in the cyberspace saga that brought down the Linda Ikeji Blog last week, has revealed shocking details about alleged criminal records of APC National Leader and former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Below is the full text of Mr. Daniyan’s post which appeared on his Google + page:
While the world was protesting against Shell Oil and the Abacha Administration for the pollution of the Niger Delta and the hanging of Ken Saro-Wiwa, Bola Tinubu secretly owned and operated a Shell Oil Station in Washington DC.
This is despite the fact that he was a part of NADECO and was publicly involved in condemning Shell Oil and the Abacha administration.
Indeed, Bola Tinubu is a shining example of a person who has extremely low moral turpitude. In my 20+ years of observing his operations, I realized long ago that if he has to choose between personal profit and doing the right thing, the former always wins.
Speaking of, as much fun as we make of Buruji Kashamu for being wanted in the USA for Heroin distribution, Bola Tinubu and his wife, Remi, were also involved in the distribution of that drug in the late 80s, early 90s.
Their career in the drug trade was cut short when they were apprehended by the US government.
To get off the hook, Bola (who was then a Senator in Nigeria) and Remi Tinubu struck a deal with Federal Prosecutors where they turned state’s evidence and forfeited the bulk of the assets they got from the narcotics trade. In exchange their criminal records were sealed, and all that was left was the civil forfeiture of assets judgement.
Below is part of that judgement:
1:93-cv-04483 USA v. Acct 263226700, et al
John A. Nordberg, presiding
Cause: 21:0881 Forfeiture of Property (Cause 21:881 means the property is forfeited because it was acquired through the distribution of drugs)
MINUTE ORDER of 10/4/93 by Hon. John A. Nordberg: Counsel for the plaintiff appeared. Enter Decree of Forfeiture as to funds held by First Heritage Bank.
It is ordered that the funds in the amount of $460,000 in account 263226700 held by First Heritage Bank in the name of Bola Tinubu are forfeited to the United States pursuant to 21 USC 881(a)(6) and 18 USC 981.
It is ordered that First Heritage Bank shall issue a check in the amount of $460,000 payable to Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago terminating case Mailed notice (fce).
Of course I need not go into the issue of Bola Tinubu’s real identity, his birth name isn’t even “Tinubu” for starters, nor do I need to rehash the issue of his falsified tertiary academic records.
Mr. Daniyan was not done yet. He carried on with a set of tweets targeted at Tinubu. He tweeted from his Twitter handle @MrAyeDee as follows with the corresponding images:
“For those who want to access Tinubu’s case history, I am about to give a primer on exactly what you need to do. Coming up in a few minutes.”
“Firstly go to the United States Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) site http://www.pacer.gov “

“Thirdly- Click on ‘Case Locator’”
“Fourthly- Click on actual URL- ‘PACER Case Locator’”
“Fifthly- Put in ‘Tinubu’ in the ‘Party Name Tab’ Don’t click ‘Exact’”
“Seventh(ly)- This comes up. Click on whatever is of interest to you… It’s all about Bola and Remi Tinubu”
BREAKING TIMES is monitoring the development closely.
Meanwhile, neither Senator Bola Tinubu nor any of his aides is yet to debunk the allegations as at the time of publishing this report.
