I was victim of corruption fighting back – Magu reacts to his removal as EFCC chair

The former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has referred to himself as a victim of corruption fighting back.

The former acting chairman of the anti-graft agency revealed that his removal from office was as a result of corruption fighting back at him.

While addressing newsmen in Abuja, the country’s capital on Sunday, the former EFCC chair said recent events have proved that he’s a victim of corruption fighting back.

“I am a victim of corruption fighting back, but I am happy that recent events are revealing the truth to Nigerians,’’ he said.

The former leader of the anti-financial crime agency was represented at the occasion by Mohammad-Saeed Ibrahim-Magu, his son.

“The anti-corruption fight in Nigeria is a binding moral duty that requires seeing beyond political affiliations or preferences,” he said.

The Informant247 recalls that Magu was apprehended and kept in detention in July 2020, after he was alleged of misappropriation.

The panel led an ex-judge, Ayo Salami, indicted the former EFCC boss, Magu of gross misconduct.
