EFCC Releases Statement Denying Magu Said Nothing Will Happen If Fayose Dies In Their Custody

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says its acting Chairman, Mr Ibrahim Magu, never said that nothing will happen if former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State dies in the agency’s custody.

The EFCC said this in a statement by its Spokesman, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, on Thursday.

The statement read in part, “The EFCC wishes to alert the general public to an audio recording of a conversation currently circulating in the social media in which the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, purportedly made comments to the effect that nothing will happen peradventure Ayo Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State, dies in custody.

“Interestingly, the audio tape did not disclose the place where the conversation occurred and the person that Magu was supposedly talking to.

 “Members of the public are advised to disregard this disingenuous creation as it is the handiwork of mischievous persons intent on distracting the commission from the serious work of wrapping up the investigation into the corruption allegations against the former governor of Ekiti State.”
