- Shehu Sani has again lambasted Ibrahim Magu over his travails
- Magu is facing trial over alleged corruption
- The former senator said Magu became intoxicated by power as EFCC boss
A member of the eighth National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has again mocked the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
Legit.ng reports that the former senator in a thread of tweet on Friday, July 10, said the embattled EFCC boss was intoxicated by power and that he was later consumed by the power.
Magu, who is facing trial over the allegation of corruption levelled against him, has been detained since Monday, July 6.
Sani said that most men in the corridor of power usually fail to realise that power is transient and comes with consequences.
He tweeted: "Every time you remind the men intoxicated with power that power is transient and comes with consequences, they think that it will never happen to them."
The former lawmaker wondered why Magu who failed in many instances to give bails on Friday now begged the presidential panel probing him to grant him bail on Friday.
"The man who don’t (sic) give bail on Friday now wants bail on Friday; He wants to take what he can’t give," he said.
In a veil reference to the embattled anti-corruption czar, Sani said that the inmates of the cell are no respecters of any big men.
"The first thing inmates go tell you when you don enter cell na “Hey Mister this na cell,we get our own gofment here, make you no come do big man here, if you don’t want make we pieces you make you be peaceful and obey here, you hear?” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Wahab Shittu, a counsel to Ibrahim Magu, on Friday, July 10, pleaded with the presidential investigation committee to grant his client bail.
It was reported that he said Magu needed the bail because the print and electronic media had taken undue advantage of his detention to launch a campaign of calumny against him.
Shittu made six other demands including making the terms of reference of the committee available to Magu and giving him the opportunity to know the allegations against him.
He said witnesses were being called and examined by the committee behind Magu’s back and at the same time disallowing him and his counsel from participating in the proceedings involving such witnesses.
