The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, has stated that the skeletons in the cupboard of members of the 8th senate is the reason why they failed to confirm the EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
The Alaafin made this known in Ibadan on Thursday when he hosted the EFCC zonal head, Friday Ebelo. According to him, the record of stolen funds recovered under Magu’s watch shows how competent enough he is to be confirmed as chairman of EFCC.
“The eighth National Assembly tried, they did everything possible not to get (Ibrahim) Magu appointed. Why? It is because they have skeleton in their cupboard,” he declared.
“We must encourage you. We must support you and cooperate with you, otherwise corruption will kill Nigeria.
“The fear of EFCC is leading some looters to several parts of the world. But you are after them. You are getting them. There is no hiding place for them.
“Through you, I want to commend Ibrahim Magu for a job well done,” he said.
