Nigerians Link Ambode’s Travails To Feud With Tinubu

Nigerians have linked the travails of former
governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, to
his long-standing feud with the national leader of
the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Justice Chuka Obiozor of the Federal High Court
sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, had on Tuesday ordered
the freezing of the sum of N9.9bn linked to Mr
Ambode.
Ambode handed over as governor on May 29,
2019, after he was denied a second term by the
APC following a falling-out with former Governor
Tinubu.
The funds frozen by the court are domiciled in
First City Monument Bank (FCMB) account
number 5617984012, Access Bank account
number 0060949275 and Zenith Bank account
number 1011691254 respectively.
Justice Obiozor gave the order following an ex-
parte application filed by the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The EFCC had prayed the court to freeze the
account pending the conclusion of investigation
and possible prosecution of Adewale Adesanya,
the permanent secretary in the Office of the Chief
of Staff to Ambode.
Nigerians on Twitter have now linked Ambode’s
trials to his dispute with Tinubu, which is believed
to be one of the reasons why he was denied a
ministerial appointment.
