Magu Denies Saying Fayose Will Die In Detention

Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has denied saying that ‘nothing will happen if Fayose dies in custody.’

The EFCC reacting via its official Twitter account urged members of the public to disregard the audio.

“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 an handiwork of mischief makers intent on distracting the EFCC from the serious work of wrapping up the investigation into the corruption allegations against Fayose.”

“#Alert The audio recording is fake as the comments did not emanate from the Chairman of the EFCC. Purveyors of this fake news especially a former spokesperson of a leading political party are warned to desist. #Fayose.”
