In a recent probe led by Special Investigator Jim Obazee, a shocking revelation emerged regarding the financial affairs of former President Muhammadu Buhari's officials. The investigation reportedly exposed a staggering $275 million found in the bank account of a six-year-old son of Sabiu Yusuf, popularly known as Tunde, who served as a Personal Assistant to Buhari.

Equally surprising was the discovery of another N1.5 trillion in the personal account of the former Personal Assistant, Sabiu Yusuf. The committee, led by Obazee, has been diligently tracing and recovering funds linked to influential figures from the previous administration.

Sources suggest that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently engaged in negotiations, employing influential figures to facilitate the repayment of the funds without public exposure. Notably, National Security Adviser Nuhu Ribadu recently expressed concern over the financial state inherited by the current administration, attributing it to widespread looting during Buhari's tenure.

It is worth noting that Tinubu enlisted the services of Jim Obazee to investigate the activities of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) under Emefiele and related entities. The ongoing investigation has reportedly led to the recovery of over N12 trillion, a significant portion of which is believed to have been embezzled during the previous administration.

In a bold move, the committee, headed by Obazee, has allegedly turned down substantial bribes offered by those implicated in an attempt to avoid arrest and exposure. The investigation continues to shed light on the extent of financial irregularities during the Buhari era, prompting calls for accountability and transparency in governance.
