US Investigation Bureau, FBI To Release 2500 Documents Pertaining To President Tinubu By October

The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will start releasing approximately 2,500 documents relating to President Bola Tinubu in its database, from October.

The FBI, according to a report by The Gazette, cited a new court filing, and said it would start releasing the documents effective October ending, at 500 pages per month.

“FBI has identified a total of approximately 2500 pages potentially responsive to FOIA requests 1553430-00 and 1587544-000,” the U.S. body said in a status report docketed on September 11 at the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in Washington, D.C.

“FBI plans a processing schedule of 500 pages per month, with an initial release anticipated by the end of October 2023.”


The unexpected move followed frontline American law enforcement institution’s initial reluctance to turn over the documents in line with a freedom of information request first filed in 2022.

Aaron Greenspan, who runs PlainSite, a website that pushes anti-corruption and transparency in public service, filed the request in collaboration with Nigerian journalist, David Hundeyin.

The Gazette has monitored the application for months and offered suggestions to help ensure its success after initial excuses by the FBI.


The disclosure is expected to clarify outstanding questions about when President Bola Tinubu entered the U.S, under which name he entered, and all activities he has been involved in ever since.

Tinubu spent decades in the United States, appearing to have first moved there in the 1970s. More details about his forfeiture of $460,000 over drug dealing in Chicago in the 1990s are also expected to be among the records to be released.
