Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied collecting N4 billion from the embattled EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu
The vice president denied the allegation via a tweet by his spokesperson, Laolu Akande
Akande described the report claiming Osinbajo collected money from Magu as fake news concocted to smear the vice president’s image.
As the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission faces presidential panel over alleged diversion of recovered loots, an unconfirmed report broke out on social media.
The report claimed that the EFCC boss told the panel that he gave Vice President Yemi Osinbajo N4 billion. The unsubstantiated report has been widely circulated on various social media platforms.
The vice president’s spokesperson, Laolu Akande, has, however, dismissed the report describing it as fake news. Akande said the report was “calculated to confuse and concocted to smear” the vice president’s image, adding that Osinbajo will “never be involved in any such shady activities”.
