EFCC: Magu Opens Up on Alleged N4b, N28m To Osibanjo And Falana

Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has opened up on the allegations that he gave N4 billion and N28 million to Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo and Mr Femi Falana respectively.

Magu described the claim as false and a calculated attempt to tarnish the hard earned reputation of the Vice President.

The suspended EFCC chairman, who was freed from detention on Wednesday, equally denied giving the sum of N28 million to Femi Falana SAN, a human right lawyer.

Magu spoke in a petition signed by his lawyer, Wahab Kunle and addressed to the chairman of the Presidential Investigation Panel, Justice Isa Ayo.

"Our client strongly denied this falsehood against the respected Vice President of Nigeria. Our client had never given the sum of N4 billion or any sum at all to Prof. Yemi Osibanjo as wrongly reported."

"This allegation is a complete fabrication. Our client never gave N28 million or any amount to Mr. Femi Falana SAN as maliciously reported. He also denied any link with a Kaduna based Bureau De Change Operator as alleged."
