The 58-year-old former Acting Chairman, who is being investigated for fraud, diversion of asserts and billions of ₦aira, asked Donald Wokoma, the CEO of DAMJAY INTEGRATED SERVICES LTD who is referred as “our Client,” to pay the money in three tranches into three accounts associated to officials working with him known as the “Magu Boys.”
DENISAURUS News, the only media to have exclusively reported how Mr Magu was using a prophet to siphon money, was able to obtain communication held on WhatsApp with instructions of the said payment.
