Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has allegedly denied ever giving Vice President Yemi Osinbajo N4 billion.
According to The Nation, Magu, who is under investigation by a presidential panel, was said to have made the denial when reacting to claims in the media that he transferred N4 billion to Osinbajo.
A member of the investigating committee also said Magu described the report as false, pointing out that he does not have access to such huge amount of cash.
He reportedly said he does not have access to such huge amount of cash and debunked claims that he ordered the transfer of N4 billion to the vice president or to anybody and demanded for the matter to be clarified.
“I did not tell the panel that I gave the Vice President N4 billion. Where will I get such money? Do I have access to such funds? It is part of mudslinging. Please clear this. I do not have any control of such cash, I did not order the transfer of N4 billion to the VP or to anybody,” sources quoted Magu as saying.
Meanwhile, following allegations that Yemi Osinbajo received funds from the suspended EFCC boss, the vice president has written to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu after an unconfirmed report went viral that Magu gave Osinbajo N4 billion after allegedly embezzling over N39 billion.
Osinbajo in a letter through his lawyers, Taiwo Osipitan, on Wednesday, July 8, petitioned the IGP to investigate allegations, adding that the claims were not true and defamatory, Premium Times reported.
