Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Wednesday night, denied receiving N4 billion from the suspended chairman of EFCC Ibrahim Magu.
A statement by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, said: “The attention of the Office of the Vice President has been drawn to a series of tweets and online publications.
The suspension of Magu “In essence, Ude’s story is that “embattled former Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, allegedly embezzled over N39 billion and gave Vice President Yemi Osinabjo (sic) N4 billion, after the VP gave instructions to him to release some of the recovered loots… ”The same Jackson Ude has also been circulating a video on YouTube with a female commentator, peddling the same lies. “With all emphasis at our disposal, let it be firmly stated that these are totally false and baseless fabrications purporting to reflect goings-on at the Probe Panel investigating Mr. Ibrahim Magu. “They are indeed completely absurd in every respect.
“Sadly, such mindless, vicious and reckless publications have now become the preferred tool of unscrupulous and reprobate elements in our society who are procured with monetary inducement to peddle blatant falsehood, tarnish the image of upright public officials and mislead unsuspecting Nigerians. “Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, will of course not be distracted by these obvious campaigns of lies and calumny,” he said.
