Breaking: FBI Rubbished my Request to Extricate Tinubu - Geoffrey Guterman
The FBI today rejected the letter written by the retired US mental doctor, Geoffrey Guterman, regarding the request, based on the Freedom of Information Act, for the FBI file on Bola Tinubu.
In his Twitter handle, Guterman tweeted the situation in the following ways:
"My request was rejected because, according to the FBI, the existence of files on third-party individuals will neither be confirmed or denied by the FBI due to unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
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 U.S. 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."
