Prepare For Surprises In Magu’s Probe – Buhari’s Aide Garba Shehu Tells Nigerians
1 year ago Dammylink 0
Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, has asked Nigerians to be prepared for surprises in the probe of Ibrahim Magu, former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Magu’s travails followed a memo by Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF), in which the suspended anti-graft czar was accused of grave malfeasance.
He was alleged to have mishandled the recovered loot and to have sold seized assets to his associates. When appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Shehu said the presidency had been receiving some updates from the panel, adding that the findings would surprise Nigerians.
“I guess this is a question for the Justice Ayo Salami panel and I must say that panel is composed of some of this country’s most honoured people with integrity who will do the right thing,” he said.
“I am not going to pre-empt the panel investigation but I just advice Nigerians to hold their hearts in their hands. By the time they are done with this job and they come out with the reports prepare yourselves for surprises.
I don’t know what will come out but if the sense we are getting from what is being done over there is anything to go by, I think that Nigerians should not be confused by any outbursts by anybody.
