The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) decision to withhold any classified documents about President Bola Tinubu from the public has prompted a response from the White House.
As previously reported, the FBI has said that it would not make any private records or information about President Bola Tinubu available to the general public.
In response to a lawsuit that American activist Aaron Greenspan brought in the United States District Court of the District of Columbia, the government agency of the United States made this known on Monday.
Greenspan is attempting to compel the production of information concerning Tinubu and a person named Mueez Adegboyega Akande from the FBI, CIA, and Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Presidential spokesman Bayo Onanuga responded by saying that the FBI delivered Atiku, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president in 2023, a fatal blow by turning down Greenspan’s request in a post on his official X handle.
Onanuga claimed that the FBI’s denial coincided with the former vice president of Nigeria’s remarks over the Supreme Court’s refusal of his appeal.
He wrote: “FBI gives Atiku, Obi deadly blow On a day that sore loser Atiku Abubakar was ranting in Abuja about the trashing of his appeal in the Supreme Court, the FBI and other US agencies dealt him another devastating blow.
“In a response to the emergency motion of Aaron Greenspan, their contractor in Washington DC, attorneys for the agencies and the US Justice Department said the FBI never promised to release any document on President Tinubu.
“This clarification debunked the false news circulated earlier in the social media space by one David Hundeyin, who practices a brand of ‘investigative journalism’ according to his own confession by ‘stealth’, as if journalism is the same as working for DSS or CIA.
“In the desperation of these conspirators, they shot themselves in the legs by filing their emergency motion, which was challenged by Tinubu’s lawyers. That counter-move effectively disrupted the conspiracy.
“FBI and other agencies have now said the emergency motion and the case arising from it, effectively meant a stay of action over the earlier court order.
“They said, based on the earlier order, they didn’t plan to release documents, even if they have them, about the Nigerian leader, as he is entitled to his privacy. And so another voyage of discovery in America has ended badly for those politicians propelled chiefly by malice.”
