The Acting Chair of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu, is a “corrupt” “serial blackmailer,” who is set to destroy the crucial fight against corruption.
This website had previously published a series of report on how Mr Magu was desperate to be confirmed as the 4th substantive chairman of the anti-graft commission.
Over time, EFCC staff who spoke exclusively to Adenike Lucas, the editor of DENISAURUS News exposed the corrupt act perpetuated by their boss. Their claims were later confirmed in an intel report submitted to the National Assembly.
Staff revealed that Mr Magu was blackmailing Emirs. They say if all plans to secure the nomination he was desperately seeking does not work, the corrupt Police Officer was set to destroy a lot of things this Government set to achieve.
Staff of the anti-graft agency said they were tired of their corrupt boss, and they have worked with this online news media in exposing their boss.
Mr Magu, in turn began to bully the whistle blowers. Last year August, the Borno born police officer authorised the arrest of a popular blogger who published a story written by Ms Lucas on the issue.
An indicting report from the Department of State Service, DSS initially prevented lawmakers from the upper chamber from screening Mr Magu last year.
The report which called him a liability to the fight against the corruption fight.
This statement was proven with the butchered operation conducted by the EFCC “rejected” chair in Ikoyi.
Sources say, “In his desperation to be confirmed, Mr Magu is dubiously trying to impress President Muhammadu Buhari, PMB.”
“He is doing so with this fake recoveries that holds no water in court. Mr Magu is quick to rush to the media about this dubious finds, but in the end he does such a shoddy investigation and the case crumbles.”
The allegation of how Mr Magu uses media ally to tarnish people’s image has been corroboration by a former spokesman to late President Umaru Yar’adua, Olusegun Adeniyi.
According to the former presidential media and veteran columnist at THISDAY Newspaper, Adeniyi averred that “sometimes in 2008, during the arrest of Mr Magu and certain devices recovered, my late boss, Yar’adua, had called my attention, and asked that we held a very private and confidential discussion.
“Upon which, my boss showed me a raw document with the inscription ‘Hajiya Turai Yar’adua is the President of Nigeria, and not her husband.’ This shocked Mr Adeniyi, who wondered why Mr Magu would engage in such media blackmail and Propaganda against the humble person of Late President Yar’adua.”
“EFCC Media Trial”
The anti-graft boss has always used his media allies to transmit inaccurate information about this government, (Seun, Pseudonym) said.
Mr Seun who works for the EFCC explained that his boss was doing so to “dent the image of PMB’s Appointees and Associates, Chief of Staff Abba Kyari; Attorney General Abubakar Malami; Gen AB Dambazau; DG DSS Lawal M Daura; Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai, Alh Mamman Daura et al. While on the side of NASS Senate, chief among targets includes Senate President Bukola Saraki, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senator Dino Melaye, and now Senator Shehu Sani who chaired a committee that led to the expose of Secretary to Government of Federation, SGF David Babachir, a nominee of the Party Chieftain from day one.” averred a reliable source.
Mr Adeniyi made the same statement when he said Mr Magu wanted to dent the image of the late President (Yar’adua) in the international political scen.
However, today, Mr Magu have gone out there to brainwash so many, into believing that he was being victimized by the government of Late President Yar’adua, just for mere fact he was investigating those close to the government at that time.
DENISAURUS News have been reliably informed, that Mr Magu and his New York media ally, Sahara Reporters, is presently sourcing for support from TV Stations, Online and Print Media, Civil Society Organisations, and others, with the aim of embarking on a total media war and propaganda against President Muhammadu Buhari, PMB and NASS Senate.
Our source who craved anonymity, said “As at now, the anti-graft agency’s boss have been able to gain the support of over 13 media bodies, who have bought into his (Mr Magu’s) nefarious agenda, just for mere “brown envelope.”
This was achieved, following a tremendous backing received by Mr Magu from a Party Chieftain, who controls virtually 75 percent of all the media in Nigeria, and few others abroad.”
Meanwhile, the major target here is President Buhari’s health, which they intend to cash-in, by way of projecting to NASS Senate, so as to impeach PMB. This will paved way for a Top government official to rule the country till 2019. Thereafter, conduct an election and handover to the Party Chieftain.
This is the reason why of recent, the said Party Chieftain have been using various voices, to clamour on the hangtag #WhereIsBuhari, and others agitating that President Buhari proceed on medical leave. Same persons who have queried the previous medical attention abroad, by PMB.
Complaints from EFCC staff members, have lingered over a long period now, on the bullying and victimisation by Mr Magu against core staff, hence the reason they have remained adamant to keep blowing the whistle, on the anti-graft boss. Most importantly, the staff see Mr Magu as indeed a liability rather than assets, to the anti-graft war of PMB as hitherto alleged in a viral DSS Report.
They believe that, when PMB does the needful by sacking Mr Magu, then would many whistle blowers come forward, to reveal what had never been known by PMB, and especially by gullible Nigerians who are blindly supporting the anti-graft boss, believing all the exposé is “Corruption Fighting Back”, as always claimed a cover by Mr Magu, the EFCC boss.
DENISAURUS News can recall vividly, how a former President had alleged that while in office, the most indicting report ever, was the corruption perpetrated by a former Governor of a commercial hub State. This should tell Nigerians, that if Mr Magu gets the support of such former political office holder in a state, then the anti-graft war of PMB’s government is history.
