A US court has refused to release confidential Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) records related to President Bola Tinubu.

Kano daily News Media learnt that in the 2500 documents are expected to provide more information about Tinubu’s time in the United States, including when he entered the country, under what name he entered, and his activities while there. The documents are also expected to shed light on Tinubu’s alleged involvement in drug trafficking in the 1990s.

But the court ruled that only documents that do not directly mention the president will be released.

The suit was filed by investigative journalist David Hundeyin in collaboration with Aaron Greenspan. The plaintiffs argued that the public has a right to know about the president’s past and that the FBI records could shed light on his involvement in alleged criminal activity.

The FBI had previously agreed to release 2,500 documents related to President Tinubu. The documents were to be released in batches of 500 per month starting from October. However, the court’s ruling now means that only a fraction of these documents will be released.
