A human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, has called on Nigerians and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government not to treat the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, the same way he treated people accused of corruption in the country.
Ozekhome further stated that the former EFCC boss will be declared innocent until he has been proven guilty by the court of law.
“The fact that he did it to others did not and does not mean it was right. Two wrongs can never make a right.”
“As I argued again and again, like a broken record, the anti-corruption ‘war ‘ was never a regenerative and ethics-defining Risorgimento war.”
“It was purely a score -settler against rights activists, the opposition, public critics, plural voices and dissenters.”
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday suspended the EFCC boss after he was questioned by the Presidential panel at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) Headquarters in Abuja.asaq
