I Was Shocked When I Read The Nonsense Allegations Against Me – Ibrahim Magu

Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has described the allegations levelled against him as “nonsense”.

Speaking after he was released from police custody, Magu said he was shocked when he read the allegations designed to tarnish his image.

He was arrested last week and whisked to the presidential villa in Abuja, where he appeared before a panel President Muhammadu Buhari set up to probe the EFCC under him.

“This are all nonsense. They are mere trump up allegations to tarnish my image and that of the EFCC. I did not steal or divert or convert funds to private use. I read the allegations and I was shocked,” Magu was quoted to have said.

“What I have gone through is a case of dog eats dog but I see it as one of those risks of the job… we must not give up in any way.”

Magu, who vowed to fight corruption till the end, thanked those who stood by him when he was in detention.

He asked Nigerians not to give up on the fight against corruption, saying: “Corruption kills a nation faster than any other thing.”

““I thank Nigerians for the assist and that they should now not be discouraged. I am happy to be back, I believe the war against corruption is winnable,” he said.

Whether I am EFCC Chairman or not, the anti-corruption war must continue.”

A slew of allegations has come to the fore since his arrest. He was alleged to have purchased a property in Dubai, United Arab Emirate using a pastor as a conduit.
