👤 EXCLUSIVE: Adenike Lucas, DENISAURUS News
The Acting Chair of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu, has commenced the threat to release blackmailing documents against associates of President Muhammadu Buhari, should they not prevent him from reporting to National Institute Of Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, DENISAURUS News has gathered.
This is coming few days after the exposé on how Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, had frustrated the proceeding of EFCC’s Magu to the Senior management course at Kuru, Jos in Plateau State.
Sources who exclusively revealed the promotion given to Mr Magu, to DENISAURUS News way before it was announced by the Police Service Commission, confirmed again that the course is mandatory. But, this paper understands that Mr Magu is very reluctant to proceed to Kuru as he would rather remain at the EFCC for self-aggrandisement.

According to information at our disposal, the number two citizen, Pastor Professor Senior Advocate of Nigeria had altered the list of attendees for the said course, in an effort to prevent anti-graft boss from leaving the agency, despite the several complaints from staff members.
Mr Magu, it was learned by DENISAURUS News, had in the past three years embarked on using his office as anti-graft czar, to gather personal and confidential details on close associates and appointees of President Buhari.
Our source disclosed that, with the serious push by the Police Service Commission, PSC, under the current chairman Musiliu Smith, a retired Inspector General of Police, Mr Magu is hell-bent on exposing the “Cabals” at the slightest provocation.
Recently, the PSC Chair had warned that he would not tolerate any form of impunity and interference, just to halt the anti-graft boss from proceeding for the mandatory course for Senior Police Officers.
Although, the VP Professor Osinbajo, who had preserved his unholy alliance with EFCC’s Magu, has been allowing rule of men to override the rule of law.
DENISAURUS News had reported in the past, how the Vice President used his cunning interpretation of S.171, Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, to rubbish a painstaking report from the Department of State Services, DSS.
The secret police under erstwhile Director General, Lawal M Daura, had in October 2016, written a detailed report to the NASS Senate, intimating on the need to reject the nomination of EFCC’s Magu as the Chair of the anti-graft agency.
DSS has warned that the anti-graft boss should not be confirmed, because he lives a ‘Double-Life’, as such, he is a “perennial offender and would be a liability on the Anti-corruption Fight of the present administration.”
Today, EFCC’s Magu has continued to superintendent over the revered Anti-graft Agency, even though, he was never confirmed by Senior Lawmakers at the NASS Senate. All thanks to former “pastor”, who remain as support clutches to anti-graft boss.
A source also revealed, stating that “Our boss who realised that he may be booted out, to attend the NIPSS course soon, had used all the paraphernalia of his office to gather information, in order to axe anyone from the government who supports the instruction for him to proceed to Jos”.
This newspaper understands that EFCC’s Magu has sent shock into the spine of associate and appointees of President Buhari, who in the past were privy to all the “corruption, impunity and victimisation” of staff members, but feign ignorance of the sordid activities of anti-graft boss.
Over hundred staff members at the EFCC who had confided in DENISAURUS News, lament severally of the nonchalant attitude of the Presidency to carry out a thorough investigation, so as to ascertain authenticity of all the allegations and exposé levelled on Mr Magu.
“We await how the Presidency would handle this latest threat of Blackmail, emanating from our boss against the insiders at the helm of affairs in Aso Rock,” intoned one of our source.
Another close associate of Mr Magu, revealed that “my friend was angry, because this people think they can use him and now discard him. But he said they should be prepared, when they see a leak on how an appointee of President Buhari was using foreign fronts to acquire assets in a particular country,” DENISAURUS News gathered, as the expression from Anti-graft Boss.
