Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, probe allegations that he collected the sum of N4bn from suspended EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
Osinbajo in a letter through his lawyers Taiwo Osipitan, said the fabricated claims originate from An online platform, PointBlank News, run by Jackson Ude, a former director of strategy and communications under President Goodluck Jonathan administration.
In the letter, the vice Presidents lawyer argued that the report was published even on social media to make Osinbajo appear like a “dishonest and disloyal public officer and consequently unfit for the position of the vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which he is occupying.
On this backdrop, the lawyer asked the IGP to investigate the allegations. He adds that if the purveyor was found guilty, the police should initiate criminal proceedings against Ude and his platform to restrain them from future ‘false publications’.
