ADEOLA AJAYI, EKITI

The suspended acting National Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, voiced out he will regain his office.

According to the case leveled against him on money laundering and misappropriation of fund by Justice Ayo Salami-led presidential investigative panel, said the charges leveled against him were trumped up.

While speaking through Mr Wahab Shittu, who said he had his instruction to give an update on the probe to Nigerians. “I have the instruction of Mr Magu to tell Nigerians that he is not against the ongoing probe.

“Mr Magu asked me to tell Nigerians that he is not against the probe. The allegations against him are trumped up. He strongly believes that his name will be cleared and he will be reinstated back to office.”

While Shittu sent a letter on behalf of Magu Shittu stated that the “serial falsehood publications in the media” in respect of matters “never featured in the proceedings of this honourable panel.”

He said, “The charges against our client are trumped-up allegations designed to tarnish his image and rubbish the credibility and image of the EFCC which has been stellar and outstanding under our client’s watch
