Seyi Tinubu, Kola Aluko and Bola Tinubu

President-elect Bola Tinubu’s son has been linked to a London firm that paid $11 million for a property in London that was previously confiscated from a notorious oil crook.

Seyi Tinubu, Mr Tinubu’s 37-year-old son who has long cornered the outdoor advertising market in Lagos, was said to have bought the property in 2017, according to a report by business outlet Bloomberg.

The medium in a story out Tuesday morning said Seyi used an offshore shell company Aranda Overseas Corporation to close the purchase, which was facilitated through Deutsche Bank. The property is reportedly tucked in an elite neighbourhood in North London. 

The report further described the property as a private three-floor residence in St. John’s Wood, equipped with an eight-car driveway, two gardens, electric gates and a gym.

The property had been previously confiscated around 2016 from Kola Aluko, a notorious oil dealer who reportedly connived with former oil minister Diezani Alison-Madueke to fleece Nigeria for nearly half a decade. Shortly after assuming office in May 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari started going after people suspected to have illegally enriched themselves under President Goodluck Jonathan (2010-2015).

Mr Aluko bought the property for about $15 million in 2013, indicating that it was sold four years later for a lower price, an uncommon scenario for such an upmarket neighbourhood. 

Bloomberg said it could not immediately find indications that Mr Tinubu, 71, was involved in the purchase, but the affair could nonetheless strengthen critics’ arguments that Mr Buhari was transferring stolen assets he seized from cronies of his predecessor to his own cronies. Mr Tinubu has publicly claimed credit for making Mr Buhari president in 2015, although the Nigerian leader, in a rare pushback last year, said his victory was a collective effort.
