Mr. Femi Falana, a Senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has denied that he did not receive N28m from the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr Ibrahim Magu who was accused of being corrupt by special presidential panel.

The newspaper’s story was based on a news published by the News Agency of the Federal Government which claimed to have gathered enough information before presidential panel's allegation against Magu for not being able to account for the interest generated from 550 Billion Naira fund recovered from 2015 — 2020.

According to NAN, the presidential panel’s report titled, ‘Final Report of the Presidential Investigation Committee on the EFCC Federal Government Recovered Assets and Finances from May 2015 to May 2020’ exposed acts of corruption and money laundering against some EFCC officials, including Magu.

Falana’s lawyer stated in his letter demanding the retraction of the NAN’s story as published by the Lagos-based newspaper within 48 hours, the story was “damning against my client because his entire career as a lawyer has been devoted to fighting human rights abuses and corruption in high and low place”.

Olumide-Fusika stated; my immediate instruction is to demand that you accept your fault, expressly admit that what you imputed against my client was not true and is unprofessional, and apologise for the damage you have caused him.

“I do hope that you will, within the next 48 hours, comply with this gentlemanly request by publication on the front page of your newspaper. Failure to do so, my instruction is to issue a Writ in the tort of defamation in other to afford you an opportunity to prove what you imputed against his my client’s character.”

And recently, Magu is out on Bail.
