Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has described as a baseless fabrication the allegation that he received N4 billion from suspended EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu.
Magu who was arrested and suspended is accused of diverting N39 billion from looted funds recovered by the antigraft agency.
N4 billion is said to have been released to Osinbajo after he allegedly gave the order.
His spokesman, Laolu Akande who issued a statement in reaction said that the allegation is the hand work of reckless publication.
“With all emphasis at our disposal, let it be firmly stated that these are totally false and baseless fabrications purporting to reflect goings-on at the Probe Panel investigating Mr. Ibrahim Magu. They are indeed completely absurd in every respect,” a statement read.
“Sadly, such mindless, vicious and reckless publications have now become the preferred tool of unscrupulous and reprobate elements in our society who are procured with monetary inducement to peddle blatant falsehood, tarnish the image of upright public officials and mislead unsuspecting Nigerians.
“Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, will of course not be distracted by these obvious campaigns of lies and calumny. The online publications, being criminally defamatory in nature, have been referred to the relevant law enforcement agencies for investigation and necessary action.”
