- The acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, was asked a question about what the anti-graft agency is doing on the petition against APC leader, Bola Tinubu but he dodged it
- The petition was prompted by reports that cash-carrying bullion vans were seen at Tinubu's home a day before the 2019 presidential election
- Magu is reported to have replied by asking a question without clarifying the issue
The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has refused to react to a question on a petition filed by an activist, Deji Adeyanju, demanding an investigation into reports that cash-carrying bullion vans were seen at the home of the APC leader, Bola Tinubu, a day before the 2019 presidential election.
Premium times reported that Magu on Friday, November 1, avoided a question about the petition against the APC leader.
The newspaper stated that the acting chairman of the anti-graft commission when asked a question about the petition, replied by asking a question.
“Do you expect me to respond on the petition?” Magu was quoted to have asked when replying.
This is not the first time the EFCC will be confronted with questions about the allegations that cash-carrying bullion vans were seen at Tinubu’s home prior to the 2019 presidential election.
In October, the EFCC said on Twitter that it was yet to act on the allegation because there was no petition.
The agency was said to have asked a social media activist, Segun Awosanya, to send a petition against Tinubu on the issue.
Meanwhile, Ibrahim Magu has revealed how Ismaila Mustapha, better known as Mompha, allegedly laundered N14 billion through a firm.
Magu, said this on Thursday, October 31, revealing further that Mompha operates 51 bank accounts in Nigeria. Using these accounts, Magu, who spoke at an interactive session in Lagos, said the suspect acquired properties in Dubai.
Magu called Mompha and the other suspects high-value targets adding that their arrests have strengthened the anti-corruption war of the EFCC.
