Alpha Beta: Group demands investigation into vandalism of court, Tinubu’s investments in Lagos #EndSARS protests

The Coalition of Concerned Citizens (CCC) has called for a probe over a possible sponsored attack on a Lagos court and properties belonging to All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu during the EndSARS protest.

The group believes the ex-Lagos State should be answer questions in relation to the vandalism of the Igbosere High Court as well as his own investments.

Recall that Tinubu, Alpha Beta, and the current Managing Director of the firm, Akin Doherty had been dragged to court for money laundering by his business partner and former Managing Director, Dapo Apara.

It is alleged that Alpha Beta is being used for illegal purposes including tax evasion, bribery of government officials, diversion of funds and money laundering.

However, the case file marked LD/7330GCMW/2020 was burnt by hoodlums with Apara’s lawyer noting that a new court case will have to be filed at Ikeja High Court.

And according to the Coalition of Concerned Citizens, the attack appears to be a deliberate attempt to wipe away evidence and cover-up the APC chieftain’s top secrets.

The destruction of some of his business interests, the group reckoned could also be a calculated attempt to keep the ‘Jagaban’ politically relevant in the buildup to the 2023 general elections.

The Coalition of Concerned Citizens, however, urged the Federal Government to as a matter of urgency unravel the circumstances behind the EndSARS protest and the arson committed in Lagos State.

It also expressed confidence that indeed a nexus exists between the protest and the arson committed in Lagos State.
