He made this known on Tuesday in an Instagram Live Chat with popular journalist, Dele Momodu.
He revealed that he met Tinubu during the build-up to the Ondo State governorship election, which involved a former Governor of the state, Olusegun Mimiko.
Igboho claimed that another former Oyo State governor, Rasheed Ladoja, told him that Tinubu wanted to see him at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos.
He then travelled to meet with Tinubu, who persuaded him not to support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the election, because the party impeached Ladoja as governor in 2006.
He revealed that Tinubu gave him N2 million to fuel his vehicle back to his base.
Igboho denied making his money from thuggery, adding that he is a businessman, who is into cars.
