Magu: Here’s how the suspension of the EFCC boss is being received on social media

Barely twenty four hours ago, Nigerians were treated to the ironic news about the head of the Economic and Financial Crimes commission (EFCC); Ibrahim Magu‘s reported arrest by the Department of State Security (DSS) over allegations of fraud and other forms of corruption. Citizens on social media had a field day discussing the irony.

To many who expressed their opinions on the issue, the state of affairs in the country as it relates to corruption appears hopeless and the concern was; “if even the core of the primary anti-graft agency in Nigeria, is in fact riddled with corruption, how then do they hope to fight corruption?”

Hours later, the narrative changed as reports quoted the DSS as refuting the reports of an arrest. The EFCC explained that the entire incident was merely an invitation to questioning, and not a forceful detention.

However, what was supposedly an invitation changed tune on Tuesday as reports have confirmed his suspension, strengthening speculations that the allegations levied against him does hold water. Reactions on social media range from; ‘I told you so!’

To debates on who his likely successor could be.

A number of Nigerians are calling for a transparent legal process, stressing that the public has a right to be in the know. In the argument of some, the Police parades likes of the common criminals they apprehend, and so Magu’s case should be no different.
