I informed Osinbajo in 2017 that Magu was looting fund – Ozekhome

Mike Ozekhome

Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), stated yesterday that he wrote vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo in 2017, giving several warnings that the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, who was just suspended by the president Buhari was looting funds but Osinbajo did not reply his letter.

Magu was arrested and detained by Security operatives in Abuja following a memo by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, in which Magu was accused of mishandling the recovered loot and selling seized assets to associates.
In a statement on Tuesday, Ozekhome said he wrote Osinbajo who was acting president at the time about Magu. “I wrote a public letter in 2017, to the then acting president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) at a time his boss, President Muhammadu Buhari, was sick on a London hospital bed.

“I complained bitterly, with facts, figures and data that recovered looted funds and property, were being re-looted by the Magu-led team who were supposed to keep the gate of our commonwealth.”

Ozekhome noted that he has confronted Magu face-to-face on at least 3 occasions.
