Magu GATE: Group condemns reports linking Osinbajo to stolen ‘EFCC funds

The Buhari Osinbajo Support Front (BOSF) has tackled Jackson Ude, a former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan over claims linking the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo to the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Liberty Olawale Badmus, the group condemned the claim made by Ude that ‘Magu gave money to the Vice President’.

The statement titled “Magu: Reports linking Osinbajo to stolen EFCC billions another PDP Dubai strategy by fake news merchant Jackson Ude – BOSF” described the allegations as ‘not only an irresponsible lie, but a concocted move to smear campaign against Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.’

Badmus said the allegations were made to tarnish the reputation of the Vice President ahead of 2023 election adding that “He (Ude) will use any and all opportunities his devious mind sees to achieve that. “While he claims knowledge of ongoing Magu investigation, the truth is that Ude has no information whatsoever neither is he connected to any credible source that might hint him about goings-on”.

Badmus added that the allegations were staged to divert attention from the ‘link between PDP leaders and Ramon Olorunwa Abbas aka Hushpuppi.

On the allegation leveled against Magu, the group said “it is on record that the EFCC chairman never mentioned the Vice President’s name and that all the news by Ude was concocted. Not only is he not close to the proceedings, but he also lacks the credibility of any kind.”
