According to reports, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has raised the alarm over a plot by desperate forces to tarnish his image.


He further denied allegations that he was blackmailing President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointees or traditional rulers.

The EFCC said in a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, that unscrupulous elements operating on social media were painting an uncanny picture of desperation by Magu over his purported non-confirmation by the Senate as the substantive chair of the EFCC.

The commission said the mission to bring down Magu is being sponsored by forces that are not comfortable with his campaign to rescue the nation from the grip of corruption.

The statement added, “In the last week or so, the social media has been awash with fictitious reports, all painting an uncanny picture of desperation by Magu over his purported non-confirmation as substantive chair of the EFCC, and of stricture within the rank and file of the EFCC workforce leading to resignations.

“One of such reports is the one making the rounds in several gossip blogs with the title, ‘How EFCC’s Magu and Sahara Reporters Peddle Lies to the Media’. The report which is a parody of disingenuous invention of falsehood is the handiwork of mischievous people hell-bent on causing disaffection between the Magu-led EFCC and the executive on the one hand, and the members of staff of the EFCC on the other.”

The anti-graft agency maintained that the EFCC boss does not bully anyone, and has not embarked on any mission aimed at blackmailing some highly placed personalities in the country such as emirs, President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointees or any other individual, lowly or highly placed in the society.

The statement added, “The allusion to bullying and victimization of EFCC staff is clearly designed to instigate the staff of the commission against its leadership as there is no truth in it. For the records, no ‘senior EFCC core official’ has resigned from the commission and insinuation of mass resignation at the commission is mere scaremongering.

“The same applies to the claim that a sensitive unit has been set up in the commission to ‘bug the phone line’ of some persons. This is mischief taken too far!.”

  1. Magu should search himself, it's not enough to come to the media and deny things. There's no smoke without fire. We should always remember that whatever we do, we do with people & through people!

  2. Mr Magu, if you are truthful and righteous in this world, be prepared to face loads of persecution, tribulation and push back from evil men and their desciples
    Even Jesus that brought love and peace to the world was framed and killed for daring to tell the untouchable Jewish elite the home truth to their faces
    In such a situation you are at the moment
    The almighty and corrupt Nigeria's elite, that had all along ruled supreme, Lord it over the less privileged and were virtually above the law will usually want to fight you with all their ill gotten wealth and undue connections
    "Many are the affliction of the righteous, but the Lord God delivers him from all"
    Never mind
    Keep on doing what you are doing
    All patriotic Nigerians are fully behind you
    "He that is in you is bigger than he that is in them"
    They will all fall like the walls of Jericho
