Here’s why EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu is trending on Twitter

Ibrahim Magu

Nigeria Twitter has a track record of bringing to awareness on many issues of concern, initiating conversations on them and ensuring they are thoroughly discussed.

On Twitter this morning, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu is trending, and while a few ideas may come to mind as to why he would trend at a time like this, many are drawing our attention to his updated statement on Hushpuppi’s arrest in Dubai.

In same vein, a huge number of people are also talking about a letter from the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), to the President, accusing Magu of insubordination and diversion of recovered looted funds.

On the first issue bothering on the arrest of self-acclaimed real estate mogul, Ray Hushpuppi, many are calling him out for his earlier statement where is reported to have said that the EFCC has no business with the ‘Instagram Big Boy,’ only to recant his statement after a ‘wanted’ tag was placed on him.

Many who stressed on this, pointed out that there seems to be some foul play and politics surrounding the issue of Huspuppi in Nigeria, as they advised Magu to also ‘deal’ with corrupt leaders in the country.

On the other hand, the Attorney-General had noted among other concerns, that there are discrepancies in the declared amount of recovered looted funds by the EFCC domicilled with the CBN, with a piece of advice to the President that Magu be investigated and fired.

A number of people agree with Malami and others also disagree with the ‘AGF.’

While a huge number of Twitter users were in support of the AGF, others tried ‘robing’ the President into the issue of the looted money, stressing that the EFCC and the Minister were appointed by him and he had vouched for them as being steadfast and honest in many ways.

However, neither the EFCC nor Magu is yet to react to the letter from the Minister of Justice to the President.
