Yemi Osinbajo: I Did Not Collect N4bn From EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu

The story of the involvement of the Vice President’s Yemi Osinbajo, alleged indictment on the ongoing probe involving the embattled Acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has been debunked by Office of the Vice President.

It should be noted that Newsreel as a responsible media outlet, is not in the business of malicious fabrications, aimed at tarnishing anyone’s image or that of the Vice President.

We therefore, make it categorically clear that we hold the vice president in high esteem and cannot intentionally bring the person and the office of the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to dispute.

We hereby, publish the statement from the Office of the Vice President signed by Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Office of the Vice President dated July 8, 2020 as follows:

“The attention of the Office of the Vice President has been drawn to a series of tweets and online publications by PointBlank News and Newsreel.com.ng today 8th July 2020, credited to the same person, one Jackson Ude.

In essence, Ude’s story is that “embattled former Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, allegedly embezzled over N39 billion and gave Vice President Yemi Osinabjo (sic) N4 billion, after the VP gave instructions to him to release some of the recovered loots…” The same Jackson Ude has also been circulating a video on YouTube with a female commentator, peddling the same lies.

With all emphasis at our disposal, let it be firmly stated that these are totally false and baseless fabrications purporting to reflect goings-on at the Probe Panel investigating Mr. Ibrahim Magu. They are indeed completely absurd in every respect.

Sadly, such mindless, vicious and reckless publications have now become the preferred tool of unscrupulous and reprobate elements in our society who are procured with monetary inducement to peddle blatant falsehood, tarnish the image of upright public officials and mislead unsuspecting Nigerians.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, will of course not be distracted by these obvious campaigns of lies and calumny. The online publications, being criminally defamatory in nature, have been referred to the relevant law enforcement agencies for investigation and necessary action”.
