I'm Not Saying Magu Is Perfect, But He Should Be Given Fair Hearing -Babajide Otitoju

Babajide while speaking on Thursday edition of Journalist Hangout on TVC, In regards the Magu's alleged corruption allegations, has revealed that as much as he knows that the suspended acting EFCC is not perfect, he however wished that he could be given fair hearing in relation to allegations raised against him.

In a statement released by Babajide on journalist hangout edition, he said:

" When it comes to the issue of corruption, it should not be against individual, either Magu is indicted or not, the war against corruption must go on and I think I saw that in Garba Shehu statement that was issued at weekend. "That this is not about individual, we need to look at EFCC as a whole to see how we can improve the effectiveness in discharging it responsibility.

"They always have strong individual to lead but we need improvement across the board, the improvement even in the policy of investigation, because many times innocent people get picked up, we put someone on trial without the fact needed to nail that person in court and it is the one of the reasons some of the people don't have pity for Magu because they say, he too have done that to people.

"Imaging Magu been detain for 10 days and many Nigerian don't see anything wrong about that, because they felt that he too have done that to people.

"There are things to do to improve EFCC as a body, its not simply about Magu, its because anybody could be there tomorrow.

"Nobody say Magu is a saint, I have no evidence that, he is a saint. I may have known him for years, I also know that people change but the point am making is, let there be fairness and I also believe that Justice Salami will do great in that aspect.

At the end of the day, they suspended many people and they say they are probing Magu.

" Am even surprise that someone like the secretary whom actually confirmed by president and he is from southwest, they suspended him and put the person who is the head of the same operation.

"Many things happened in our country, that you wonder what is really go on.
