- Ibrahim Magu should be placed on the federal government's watch-list
- This was the opinion of Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti, on Tuesday, July 7
- Fayose said that this was exactly what the embattled EFCC boss did to him immediately he left office as governor
For some Nigerian politicians who have tasted prosecution and investigations from anti-graft agencies, what is happening to Ibrahim Magu is nothing short of nemesis.
One of such politicians is a former governor of Ekiti, Peter Ayodele Fayose, who on Tuesday, July 7, made known his take on the travails of the embattled Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) boss who was recently suspended.
On his official and verified Twitter page, Fayose called on the federal government to place Magu on its watch-list so that he will not be able to escape prosecution and trial.
Fayose also urged EFCC, the Department of State Services, the Nigerian Customs Service, the Nigerian Police Force, the Nigerian Immigration Service and the Armed Forces to be on the lookout for Magu.
The former governor said: "Just as Magu directed that I be placed on "Watch-list" even when I had immunity as a sitting gov, Magu too must be placed on watch-list so that he won't run away.
"EFCC, DSS, Customs, Police, Immigration, Army, Navy, Air Force, others, over to you. What goes around comes around."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, had reacted to the travails of Ibrahim Magu.
Sani on Wednesday, July 8, alleged that the embattled anti-graft agent is running a cult in the EFCC called the "Magu boys" or the "Chairman Squad".
According to the former senator, the alleged cult is the brain behind most of the frame-ups, blackmail and cruel prosecutions carried out by some members the commission who are only answerable to Magu.
Sani went on to say that other members of the gang must be rooted out like their ringleader before dark activities can be revealed to the public eye.
He said: “The cult has been the wheel behind the ordeal of their embattled Boss. Until they are rooted out from the agency also, I believe a lot of revelations will be coming out from other marginalized and honest officers in the so-called anti-corruption agency.”
