Magu Dismisses Allegations Against Him, Vows To Return To EFCC
According to reports reaching Wakeupafrica360 from our source in Nigeria, the suspended acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, has dismissed all allegations of corruption and insubordination levelled against him. According to reports, President Buhari had suspended the acting boss of the anti-graft agency and replaced him with the EFCC Head of Operations, Mohammed Umar. Ibrahim Magu is currently being investigated by a presidential panel headed by Justice Ayo Salami following allegations by the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami. Justice Malami accused the former EFCC boss of corruption, insubordination, mismanagement of recovered lots among other allegations. Magu debunked this allegations when his lawyer, Wahab Shittu spoke with the press. According to Shittu, he said and I quote, “I have the instruction of Mr Magu to tell Nigerians that he is not against the ongoing probe.
Mr Magu asked me to tell Nigerians that he is not against the probe. The allegations against him are trumped up. He strongly believes that his name will be cleared and he will be reinstated back to office.”
It can be recalled also the Ibrahim Magu alleged that some untrue allegations we’re published against him while he was in detention. This he said in a letter to the Ayo Salami-led panel. He went further to debt reports that some dollars and expensive jewelries and wristwatches we’re fund in his house during a raid by security operatives. He denied owning any property in Dubai or ever offering money to Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo and frontline lawyer, Femi Falana. He also said that nothing incriminating was found in his residence during the raid by security operatives.
