Tinubu Requests Court Order to Prevent Release of Sensitive Documents by FBI and IRS (Images Included)

As a reminder, the FBI had announced its intention to disclose confidential documents regarding President Tinubu from their databases to Aaron Greenspan, the owner of PlainSite, a platform dedicated to promoting anti-corruption and transparency in public service. This disclosure was slated to occur before the end of October.

In response to this, one of Tinubu’s legal representatives in the United States, Bryan A. Carey, submitted a motion dated Monday, October 23, 2023, with the aim of preventing the two federal agencies, the FBI and IRS, from releasing certain confidential information to the public.

Tinubu’s attorney informed the court that the FBI and IRS did not consider his client’s interests in this matter, as the requested documents, sought by the plaintiff Greenspan, included the President’s private records, some of which are protected by the law.

More specifically, Tinubu argued that he would face adverse consequences should the U.S. Court for the Northern District of Columbia in Washington D.C. deny his motion to intervene in the case.

“Mr. Tinubu should be granted the right to intervene because he possesses a direct interest in the records being sought. His interests are not adequately represented or safeguarded by the defendants, and he will suffer negative consequences if he is not allowed to intervene,” emphasized Carey.

Furthermore, the attorney requested a 30-day timeframe to meticulously review all the files, ensuring that his client’s private and legally protected documents would not be disclosed.

Tinubu’s recent action follows a previous legal battle in which he attempted to prevent a federal court in Chicago from releasing his academic records to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
