Former Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has accused Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, of running the agency like a cult.
Magu was suspended yesterday after allegations were levelled against him which revealed that he transferred recovered looted funds abroad through a third party.
Shehu Sani who is currently being prosecuted by the EFCC said that the antigraft agency has some cruel officers whoo report to Magu.
“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,” he said.
“They are a select cream of vicious and cruel officers who operate exclusively and with impunity and only report directly to their boss. The inside cult is the dark and immoral aspect of the agency 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 also, I believe a lot of revelations will be coming out from other marginalized and honest officers in the so-called anti-corruption agency.”
