FORMER lawmaker, Shehu Sani Wednesday openly celebrated the suspension of Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission – EFCC, saying the embattled Magu ran the commission like a cult.
Mau appeared before a panel set up to investigate him by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday. He was suspended as EFCC boss on Tuesday after spending the previous night with security agents in Abuja. He’s still being investigated over allegations of misconduct.
On his Facebook post on Wednesday, Sani said that the EFCC was being run by an alleged cult.
‘’Contrary to the facade you see from the Outside, the EFCC has been run by an inside cult called “the Magu Boys” or “the Chairman Squad”: They are a selected cream of vicious and cruel officers who operate exclusively and with impunity and only report directly to their boss,’’ Sani said.
Sani, himself, a person of interest to the anti-graft agency, described the ‘inside cult,’ as ‘the dark and immoral aspect of the agency,’ which the former lawmakers, said engaged in persecution, blackmail, frame ups and cruelty.’
‘’The cult has been the wheel behind the ordeal of their embattled Boss. Until they are rooted out from the agency, I believe a lot of revelations will be coming out from other marginalized and honest officers in the so called anti corruption agency!’’
