Acccording to him,  the investigation would take time because of its nature

Making this remark while Speaking with ThisDay, Bawa revealed that they have a request for Tinubu’s assets declaration form.

According to Bawa: “You asked me a question earlier about arresting people before an investigation and now you are saying why didn’t we arrest Tinubu? Why didn’t you just say ‘arrest him’?

“Investigation is ongoing. When you are investigating matters like this, they don’t end in a day. Thousands of investigations are going on, on a daily basis.

“You understand? You know you are from the media. After you will say we are doing a media trial.”

Recall that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, had jettisoned plans to probe Tinubu

He had said his office had no plans to investigate the former Lagos State governor.
