PDP discredits Magu’s probe


The PDP has raised concerns about the current probe into the alleged siphoning of funds and assets by the embattled suspended boss of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.

The party said the concerns were raised when Magu’s lawyer, Wahab Shittu made the bold statement that his client will soon be freed and cleared of all charges.

PDP put out a statement titled “Fraud Allegations: PDP Tasks Presidential Panel over Magu’s Boast of Reinstatement” signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Friday.

An excerpt of the statement read “The boast by the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, that he would be cleared and reinstated despite the allegations against him is a huge affront on the integrity of the ongoing inquest by the Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential Investigative Panel on the activities of the EFCC.

“Nigerians were shocked when the counsel for the suspended EFCC acting Chairman, Wahab Shittu, boastfully declared that he had Magu’s instruction to inform the public that ‘he will be reinstated back to the office.”

Mr. Ologbondiyan said, “Our party hopes that this is not a case of corruption fighting back in a frantic effort to shield accused persons from prosecution.”

“Already, the statement by Magu’s counsel has heightened public concerns that the probe has become a sham and that the allegations against Magu will eventually be swept under the carpet despite demands by Nigerians to prosecute the suspended EFCC boss in a court of competent jurisdiction.“
