UGC A member of the investigating committee said Magu described the report as false, pointing out that he does not have access to such huge amount of cash.
He reportedly said he did not order the transfer of N4 billion to the vice president or to anybody and demanded for the matter to be clarified. “I did not tell the panel that I gave the Vice President N4 billion.
Where will I get such money? Do I have access to such funds? It is part of mudslinging. Please clear this. I do not have any control of such cash, I did not order the transfer of N4 billion to the VP or to anybody,” sources quoted Magu as saying.
The unsubstantiated report which has been widely circulated on various social media platforms claimed that the EFCC boss told the panel that he gave Osinbajo the funds.
According to Premium Times, Osinbajo in a letter through his lawyers, Taiwo Osipitan, on Wednesday, July 8, petitioned the IGP to investigate allegations, adding that the claims were not true and defamatory.
