Suspended EFCC Boss, Magu Makes First Statement After His Release From Detention

The suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has made the first statement after his release from detention.

It could be recalled that Magu was taken into custody following some corruption allegations leveled against him.

Speaking after his release from detention, he said;

“They are nonsense. They are mere trump up allegations to tarnish my image and that of the EFCC. I did not steal or divert or convert funds to private use. I read the allegations and I was shocked.

What I have gone through is a case of dog eats dog but I see it as one of those risks of the job… we must not give up in any way.”
