EFCC has reacted to a story published by Premium Times with the headline: “EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, attends Buhari re-election gathering”.

The story stated that Magu was at the gathering to strategise on the re-election campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari. “The event, which held on Tuesday at Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja, was exclusively billed as a consultative forum for politicians of the ruling All Progress Congress. It was put together by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups, a political action committee loyal to President Buhari”, the report said.

EFCC in its response said,

‘the fact is that Ibrahim Magu never attended any Buhari re-election gathering at Nicon Luxury Hotel, Abuja. At exactly 8:59am on Tuesday, December 4th, 2018, the EFCC boss was already at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja en route Lagos where he had engagement with Media Executives’.

Before the trip to Lagos, Magu visited a family relative who lodged at the hotel, Nicon Luxury. He went straight to the room where his relative was lodged and met with him very briefly before departing for Lagos where he met with newspaper editors. These facts were laid bare when Ogundipe called to confirm his story.

Magu is not omnipresent to have been in Lagos and also in Abuja at the same time. For Ogundipe to still come up with such a screaming headline after confirming from the Commission only shows that his mind was made up to do the hatchet job which he has exhibited by his write up.
