The suit was filed by investigative journalist David Hundeyin in collaboration with Aaron Greenspan. The plaintiffs argued that the public has a right to know about the president’s past and that the FBI records could shed light on his involvement in alleged criminal activity.
The FBI had previously agreed to release 2,500 documents related to President Tinubu. The documents were to be released in batches of 500 per month starting from October. However, the court’s ruling now means that only a fraction of these documents will be released.
