Based on his indictment, Tinubu was said to have on October 4, 1993 forefeitted a sum of $460, 000 dollars in his bank account number 263226700 domiciled at First Heritage Bank in the name of Bola Tinubu to the US government.

 The group attached certified true copy of the US Court judgment to its letter of request for Tinubu’s arrest as evidence of the alleged offences and the conviction by the court.

The judgment was signed by Michael Shepard, a United States Attorney and Marsha McClellan,  Assistant United States Attorney.
