Osinbajo’s Aide Denies Allegation He Ordered Magu To Release N4 Billion To Him

Laolu Akande, the media aide to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied his boss ordered the suspended boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission  (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu to give him N4 billion.

According to Akande, the reports that Osinbajo ordered Magu to give him the money from the recovered looted funds were “lies”.

“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,” Akande said in a statement on Wednesday.

Recall that Magu is being questioned by a presidential panel for allegedly converting ownership of properties recovered from corrupt officials.

The inquest into Magu’s operation at the EFCC comes after Nigeria’s Attorney General sent a memo to President Muhammadu Buhari detailing a raft of allegations against Magu that were leaked to the press.

The attorney general accused the anti-graft head of selling off assets recovered during corruption investigations and of “insubordination”.
