What FBI Told Me About Tinubu’s File – Jeffrey Guterman

Jeffrey Guterman on his social media account said that the FBI rejected his request on the grounds that disclosing the existence of files concerning third-party individuals would constitute an invasion of personal privacy.

Guterman, a retired American mental health counselor, has revealed that the Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI) dismissed the application he made asking for the release of a file containing information about President-elect Bola Tinubu.

According to Guterman, FBI said the request failed to comply with their terms of service.

Quoting Guterman, “I found it noteworthy that in my online submission, I referred to Tinubu as ‘Bola Tinubu,’ but in their letter, the FBI referred to him as TINUBU, BOLA AHMED. How would the FBI access the Ahmed part of his name? Again, I did not provide the Ahmed part of his name in my submission. Moreover, it is public knowledge that the FBI has a file on Tinubu for his $460,000 forfeiture to the US.

“The letter also states that if I received their response through standard mail (which I did), this is because my online submission did not meet their terms of service. According to the letter, my options are to (1) submit any questions by email or call their office, (2) administratively appeal their decision within 90 days of the date of their letter, and/or (3) seek dispute resolution by email.

“I will now consider my next plan of action,” Guterman said.

Guterman is one of the strong supporter of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the just concluded election in Nigeria.
