EFCC Chairman Magu Reports Justice Taiwo

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has revealed what lawyers and some judges are allegedly doing.

The acting EFCC boss alleged that the legal practitioners are lobbying to be part of election petition tribunals and cases because of money.

Magu, in a statement, reminded lawyers, judges, elected public officials and members of the wider society not to use the Election Petition Tribunals as conduits for siphoning public funds.

He noted that the anti-graft agency, has the statutory powers to monitor, track, investigate, arrest and prosecute such and other offences.

The EFCC boss said EFFC, wants to strongly state that the rights of Nigerian voters to freely choose their leaders are sacrosanct and that their choice should not be thwarted on the altar of corrupt material inducement by anyone.
