348

The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has asked the Inspector General of Police to fully investigate the allegations made by an online journalist, Jackson Ude from Point- Blank news alleging that he had received 4 billion naira from the embattled EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu.

The Vice President who wrote to the IGP through his lawyers noted that if those claims are found to be false, then criminal proceedings for criminal defamation should be brought against Jackson Ude.

The letter written by the chambers of Bayo Osipitan and Co dated 8th July 2020 describes the allegations as vicious and malicious meant to portray the vice president as a dishonest and disloyal public officer unfit for the office of the vice president.

According to the article, the money was part of a 39 billion naira loot by Magu.

The blogger is also said to have alleged that the embattled EFCC chair is begging for a soft landing from the presidential panel because of this.

The probe of the former EFCC boss comes after he was alleged of re-looting looted funds recovered by the agency.
