According to a report, a company owned by Tinubu’s son purchased an $11 million mansion in London in 2017. Under former President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigerian government attempted to seize the property as part of an investigation into a major corruption scandal. Charly Boy responded to the report on Twitter, stating that this scandal is only the start of the unparalleled corruption that Nigerians can expect under Tinubu’s leadership.

Charly Boy shared screenshots of the allegations against Seyi Tinubu with the words,

“We never see anything. If the INEC-select president succeeds enter May 29th, we go see Shege Banza.
