Ibrahimagu has made four key points after he was released on bail from custody where he spent ten days.
Magu was arrested and later suspended on allegations of diverting loots recovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
He was immediately suspended as acting chairman of the antigraft agency.
The travails have now been described as shocking by embattled Magu who spoke shortly after his release on bail.
Below are four key points he raised.
1. Allegations against him are “nonsense”
Magu said he was shocked when he read the allegations against him, saying “they are nonsense”. According to him, the allegations were cooked up to tarnish his image and that of the EFCC.
2. A case of dog eats dog
Speaking in parable, Magu said what happened to him “is a case of dog eats dog”, He, however, he considered it “as one of those risks of the job”.
3. Anti-corruption fight is winnable
The embattled EFCC boss said no matter the challenges, he strongly believes the fight against corruption can be successful. He, therefore, urged Nigerians to “own the war against corruption” which President Buhari “is determined to eradicate”.
4 Not discouraged by his travails
Magu said he was happy to be released, adding that he “will forever wage war against corruption”. “It is not a personal fight. Whether I am EFCC Chairman or not, the anti-corruption war must continue,” Magu said. “I am happy to be back, I believe the war against corruption is winnable.”
